Opening your own business is exciting and thrilling. A methodical plan of action dictates whether a small business will make it or not. Success lies in the approach you take and we help you avoid the pitfalls that many small business owners make when starting.
I help you:
- Select a business structure that best fits your needs by evaluating tax advantages, legal exposure, ease of operation and portability should you need to relocate
- Select the right accounting software by evaluating your budget, needs and hardware
- Establish billing and collection procedures to maximize your cash flow
- Establish procedures to monitor and control costs
- Setup a home office so you can maximize your tax deductions
- Prepare and file all required provincial and local licenses and permits
- Prepare and file your application for your CRA Business Number
- Provide payroll and payroll tax filing when you bring on your first employee
