Frequently Asked Questions

This is a difficult question that requires discussion to evaluate. Please contact us, and we can help guide you through this decision.

Rather than providing an exhaustive list of deductible expenses, it’s more beneficial to grasp the rationale behind what qualifies as deductible. In essence, an expense becomes deductible when it contributes to your business’s advancement, such as attracting more customers, enhancing your expertise, or facilitating product development. Therefore, if an expenditure has positively impacted your business operations, it’s likely deductible in some form—either as an expense or a capital asset. For precise guidance, it’s advisable to seek assistance from a qualified accountant.

As an incorporated business, there are only three ways to extract funds from your corporation: salary, dividend, or loan. Each one of these methods has pros and cons that should be evaluated before making the decision. Reach out to us if you need help deciding how to pay yourself.

This needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Leases tend to provide a tax deduction evenly through the course of the lease. Buying tends to have a larger deduction in the first few years of ownership (via depreciation), but the deduction gets smaller as the years go on. Deciding whether to lease or buy normally comes down to your personal cash flow and lifestyle. In most cases, tax is not a deciding factor. Contact us to help you make this decision.

You can keep your records yourself using software such as QuickBooks Online or even Excel. Alternatively, see our bookkeeping page for our managed bookkeeping services.
