Frequently asked questions about voluntary disclosure program - second

Can I make a disclosure through Voluntary Disclosure Program (VDP) more than once?

You cannot make a second submission for the same issue for which you originally received the benefits of Voluntary Disclosure Program (VDP) because you are expected to keep your affairs up to date after using the VDP.

However, the CRA will consider a second disclosure in situations where the circumstances were beyond your control. In this case, you must give your name and tell the CRA that you previously made a disclosure. If you do not reveal that you previously made a disclosure and this is uncovered by the CRA, your disclosure may be considered invalid and denied.
