Edmonton Accounting Firm | Money Saved Is Money Earned

Edmonton accounting firm is a surefire way for all small businesses, including new small businesses to accumulate wealth that much quicker. They will teach the intricacies of not paying too much tax, and the benefits and shortcomings, if any, of incorporating your business. It is from years of experience counselling clients that Edmonton accounting firm recognizes the needs and questions of small business owners. And they are anxious to help businesses to avoid financial ruin and bankruptcy, which happens to 50% of small businesses within the first five years that they are open.

First of all advises that new small business owners should educate themselves on simple financial terms, slogans, jargon, and words. This will make it easier when that small business owner meets with their accountant for updates and any changes to the small business, the files, or the bookkeeping etc. You need to know exactly what you’re talking about and what you’re working with in terms of the success of your small business. Your charter professional accountant will be able to sit down with you and, among the first meeting potentially be able to save you money and a lot of tax. For example, they will introduce you to the small business tax rate, particularly and for example in the province of Alberta in Canada of 11% versus the personal tax rate which you are no doubt paying right now of 48%. A reminder that with a savings of 30% in tax month over month in year-over-year, you will be able to add efficiency to your business with more employees and better equipment which in turn provides a domino effect and will bring in more clients, ergo more revenue.

Likewise, says Edmonton accounting firm, if you work in a high-risk industry, if you are an incorporated firm that you will be able to be backed up with rehabilitation, and support through the Worker’s Compensation board. It is far harder to receive support from WCB if in fact you are not incorporated in do not hold WCB number. Incorporation reassures the fact that you and your employees will be able to get the support that they need in a time that they will potentially need it most.

As well, your CPA will instruct you that if you do in fact ever get sued on a job professionally, that if you are incorporated you will be covered from losing your life savings, your car, your house, or your business. Technically, your livelihood is on the line if you do not incorporate your business.

As well, you will also potentially lose your tradename if you are not incorporated. Business is obviously very competitive and everybody’s looking for a wonderful identity where they can secure new and more clients. If you have a great tradename, and you are simply registered with court registries, then you really have no legal right to that tradename.

A wonderful time-saving way, says Edmonton accounting firm, in paying your monthly or yearly taxes, and fees, is simply to write a whole bunch of postdated checks, pass them off to your charter professional accountant, for him to submit to the Canada revenue agency in a timely manner. If you do not leave this to your charter professional accountant and you take it upon yourself, be sure to get all of that information, and checks in on time otherwise the Canada revenue agency does not take kindly to late submissions and may impose fines or account freezes. It is simply easier to hire a charter professional accountant so that they may take care of that and you can focus on other parts of the business.

Another wonderful way of incorporation is the fact that, if you are incorporated, you will be able to retain, your business identity, your business fingerprint. That is your distinct an individual tradename. With incorporation you have the sole right to your tradename and you have the legal right to sue somebody if in fact they use it. If you have simply registered your tradename with court registries, that is not enough to secure your tradename and it can legally and easily be removed from you.

Incorporation can be as easy a process as, from beginning to end, one business day. You may phone your charter professional accountant in the morning and the process can be done by business and. As well, there is only a couple of signatures needed. Your accountant does everything in between. It is marginally different if you are a doctor or a lawyer in that if in fact a doctor or lawyer wants to incorporate they need a stamp of approval on the governing body. This process could take a couple of weeks, however can also easily be done by a charter professional accountant.

Edmonton accounting firm says that your CPA will instruct you and advise you to incorporate as this is a wonderful way to accumulate growth and wealth in your business and from your business. You can grow your business quicker as he will be saving more money and tax, and you will be wealthier quicker because you will get more revenue out of your business because it has become more efficient.

If you work in a high-risk industry, says Edmonton accounting firm, and you are incorporated, the choices that you have with WCB, the Worker’s Compensation board, far outweigh those that if you weren’t incorporated. You will have the support and the optics of legitimacy with your company will be there for WCB to support you in a timely way.

The Confucius quote is very apt when he says life is really simple but we insist on making it complicated.” That quote can definitely be associated with people who do not make the choice to incorporate their businesses. In fact, there are not any shortcomings or downfalls to incorporating your company. However you may reap many benefits personally and professionally from an incorporated company.
