If you’re not good with numbers or don’t know anything about Canada’s tax laws, it may be in your best interest to hire a tax accountant like one of our experts at TaxAssist Accountants. Working with a qualified tax accountant can be especially beneficial if you:

It’s difficult enough to run your business, let alone learn about all the new tax laws. You can do your taxes yourself, as long as you’re willing to put in the time and effort. Instead, hire a tax accountant to handle the number-crunching, while looking out for all the allowances and reliefs you qualify for. They may even save you money.

What Are Some Common Mistakes from Filing My Own Taxes?

When you file your own small business tax return, you’ve already overcome the most common error business owners make: not filing. The second most common mistake is failing to pay the taxes you owe. This blunder often ends up costing you more in penalties and fees. If you’re preparing your taxes, you take on some risk, and that’s another reason to hire a tax consultant. Other common mistakes include:

  • Not making  estimated tax installments throughout the year
  • Not knowing what business deductions and allowances to take
  • Forgetting to separate business expenses from personal expenses
  • Not keeping accurate records of your expenses

Some experts claim that not hiring a tax accountant is your biggest mistake. The team at TaxAssist Accountants guides you through your taxes, making the process much easier on you. We can also help you with your bookkeepingbusiness planningpayroll, and more

What Are the Differences Between Canadian and U.S. Tax Laws?

You may have a Canadian business operating in the United States and vice versa. This complication is another good reason to hire a tax accountant. Since tax laws are subject to change, it’s comforting to know that your accountant is up to date on current CRA requirements.. Notable differences in tax laws between Canada and the U.S. include:

  • Due to differences in government spending, Canada has a higher tax rate.
  • Taxes are higher for people in upper-income brackets in Canada than in the U.S.
  • Canada has a goods and services tax; the U.S. doesn’t.
