HAPPY TAX SEASON!
There are a lot of different tax breaks and deductions that you can take advantage of as a Canadian startup. We’ll cover some of the most common ones here.
The first tax break is the small business deduction. This deduction allows you to deduct a certain amount of business income from your taxes. The amount you can deduct depends on the province you’re in, but it’s usually between $5,000 and $15,000.
Another common deduction is the home office deduction. This deduction allows you to deduct a portion of your rent or mortgage if you have a dedicated home office space.
There are a lot of other deductions and tax breaks that you can take advantage of as a Canadian startup. Be sure to talk to your accountant to see what you can claim.
WHO CAN HELP YOUR BUSINESS TAXES?
While it’s possible to do your business taxes on your own, it’s usually a good idea to hire an accountant. An accountant can help you maximize your deductions and make sure that you’re filing your taxes correctly.
When you’re hiring an accountant, be sure to ask about their experience with Canadian taxes. You’ll also want to ask about their fees and what type of services they offer.
