Business Tax Guidelines for Canada

Starting this New Year, 2022, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the global economy. Filing taxes during such a chaotic year can be stressful, even if you consider yourself well-versed in business taxes. But of course, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) remains open!

As a business owner, you want to be tax-savvy, or find someone who is, like the TaxAssist Accountants.

Paying Canadian Business Taxes

One of Canada’s primary tax agendas focuses on stabilizing the economy. Approved budget highlights may benefit your business. The highlights to familiarize yourself with include:

  • Taxes on the digital economy and ways to support a “green” economy;
  • Particular business incentives targeting hiring policies;
  • Anti-avoidance rules;
  • Restrictions placed on deductions;
  • Mandatory reporting.

The network of specialists at TaxAssist Accounting can help you navigate the tax changes for 2021 and prepare for 2022. Tax tips for businesses make sure your business continues to thrive. After all, all businesses strive to make a profit while paying just the taxes you owe and no more. To make your business more effective in this digital, global economy, there are tax tips for businesses to follow.

Tax Tips for Businesses in Canada

If you have a small business, maintain a separate business banking account and keep an accurate record of your receipts. This organization makes filing taxes easier. But there are other tips that affect the amount of tax you pay. Consider the questions that affect or provide support for business, such as:

  • How should I structure my business? Choices include:
  1. A proprietorship.
  2. A partnership.
  3. A limited liability corporation.
  • Which government support funds can I access? Options include:
  1. The Job Growth Fund, which includes funds to support a transition to a green economy.
  2. The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program, which Canada has proposed to extend until March 2022.
  3. The Canada Recovery Hiring Program.
  • When should I sell or purchase depreciable assets?
  • Which employees do I need to give a T2200 or T22002 form?
  • Should I revisit any family payment strategies, if applicable?
  • How can I understand how the small business deduction and passive investment rules affect my business?
  • How can I decide when and if I should apply for government financial support?
