Are you self-employed?

I am self-employed, how does this impact my taxes?

As the owner of your own business, your tax return is more typically more complex than an employed individual. Meeting with a professional accountant this year is the best way to ensure you are maximizing your tax savings.

 

 

What expenses can I claim?

Most costs incurred to earn revenue in your business can be claimed on your tax return.

Prior to meeting with your accountant this tax season, download our free Statement of Business Activity.

This statement is a great template to ensure you are claiming all possible expenses for your business. If you have any questions about the validity of one of your expenses, we are more than happy to go over it with you.

Do I need to file GST?

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether you are required to register for GST. We recommend sitting down with a tax professional this year to decide what is the best solution for your business.

It should be noted that once the sales of products or services not GST exempt or zero rated exceed $30,000 in any 12 consecutive months you must begin remitting GST.

 

Book your tax meeting with one of our tax professionals online today or by contacting one of our seven offices in Manitoba.

 

Things to consider if you are self-employed:

  1. Tax filing deadline

If you (or your spouse or common-law partner) run a sole proprietorship business, your tax filing deadline is June 15, rather than April 30.

Please note that even though you aren’t required to file your taxes until June 15, any taxes you may be owing are due April 30. We therefore recommend you meet with your accountant prior to this date to avoid potential interest accruing.
