A B.N.C.-based data recovery company has been offered a $5-million contract to sell software and data recovery systems to the Ottawa government.
Data Recovery Services is based in Prince George, B.L., and the government has requested $5 million in a contract with the company, which has about 1,500 employees in Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.
Data Recycle Services is owned by the same people who owned the company that ran the provincial government’s tax preparation systems for the past decade.
Data Retention Canada said it has not received a formal request for a tax return-related purchase, but said it is “proud to partner with B.S.S.” to help the government process tax returns and return information.
The company will be paid $5.6 million over the next three years, including $500,000 for the acquisition of its assets and the purchase of software and infrastructure, said John Poulin, director of business development and government affairs at Data Retain Canada.
The government has been struggling to get the paperwork and tax information it needs to comply with tax rules.
Earlier this year, the B.B.C.’s tax administration launched a series of audits aimed at helping the government get information from taxpayers.
The B.P.C., the B:C.
government, and the federal government all agreed to work together to speed up tax returns.
The tax administration has also started an online tool that will help people fill out their tax returns online, helping to speed their processing times.
The province has also been working to get more tax returns processed quickly.
C-based Data Recovery is a data-analytics company that helps governments and businesses manage their records, including financial data, in real-time.
It has helped the B to comply more efficiently with the federal, provincial and territorial tax systems and to identify issues and improve the quality of its tax returns, said Poulins.
B:P.T., which is owned and operated by the B.:P.P., is an independent contractor that uses a proprietary data-processing and data-management software to help government departments, businesses and organizations with tax returns prepare and manage their documents.
BPI has a $1.6-billion annual revenue.
Data and Recycle is owned in part by a British Columbia-based company called Data Retence.
A B:B.L.-based company, Data Recovery Technologies Ltd., was established in 1993 and has more than 500 employees in B.D. Howe, B:L.P.’s largest city.
The data recovery services company is based at the Vancouver office of software company Kroll, which is a subsidiary of data-protection company, Veritas Data Protection.
Data Rescue Services, a British Columbian company, also has offices in Victoria, B., and Prince Edward.
The information is supplied by Kroll and Veritas, according to the BPI contract.
“We are very excited to partner in this great opportunity to help ensure taxpayers have the information they need to complete their tax return, as well as the information that helps us help them achieve their tax goals,” said Chris Wilson, director general of BPI.
“B:P.’ and Data Rescue have an exciting relationship and have a long history of working together to help our provincial and federal governments manage and process their financial information.”
The deal is expected to close in the second half of 2019, according the Bpi contract.
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation, a B.A.-educated, non-partisan group, called the deal “an important first step in our mission to provide Canadians with tax information and prepare their taxes with confidence.”
It said it was not surprised by the tax-payer assistance.
“Taxpayers deserve better, but they also deserve more information,” said CTF spokesperson Andrew Coyne.
“As we’ve heard time and time again, the government needs to keep tax returns under control and make sure they get it right.”
