The work ‘taxation’ is a pretty broad term. What we hope to instil in you is a mode of questioning the types of taxes that might affect your business. We strongly suggest that you are proactive in tax-planning.
- Sole Proprietorship: Include on your personal income tax and benefit return (T1) if you are a one person business
- Corporation: Corporate income tax return (T2)
- Partnership: there are various ways in which income must be declared.
- GST/HST: Although the consumer ultimately pays GST/HST, businesses are generally responsible for collecting and remitting it to the government.
- Payroll deductions and remittances: As an employer, you are responsible for deducting Canada Pension Plan (CPP) contributions, Employment Insurance (EI) premiums and income tax from payroll; as well as remitting them to CRA and reporting them on the applicable slips.
