Personal Income Tax & Sales Tax


Personal Income Tax

If looking for a new accountant to handle your annual income tax filing I am adding new clients. Tax season is a busy time so the sooner records received the sooner a completion date can be provided. Existing personal tax clients receive a reminder email mid-January each year.

Some clients may have multiple years to file to get them up to date. The office has software to prepare any prior year file using the tax rates and rules from that tax year.

Taxpayers with income from foreign sources have filings and unique tax planning to consider. Available to answer questions with foreign tax.

GST & PST

If there are GST returns outstanding will get your filings caught up. The goal is to return this responsibility back to the client by teaching how to complete future filings.Can assist if there is a need to change the GST reporting frequency or GST reporting period.

Recent changes by Saskatchewan Ministry of Finance has major implications for those in the construction industry. Let me confirm if this affects your business.

If buying goods or sellling product to customers in other provinces let me review the rules so you can ensure being onside with each province.

Small Business


Small business owners start out wearing all the hats. Some are more comfortable to wear than others. Commonly the finance hat is the least favorite to wear, which can create problems for the business. I can work with business owners to outsource the finance responsibilities however this comes with a cost and a constant reliance. If ownership wants to take on the finanance responsibilities to get a better pulse of business and allow for future backfilling I can work throughout the year on answering record keeping and internal reporting questions.

Recent federal tax changes may increase the CRA's federal corporate tax rates however Saskatchewan is still home to the lowest rates in country. Can share how to benefit from this.

Audit & Assurance


Licensed by CPA Saskatchewan to issue both audit and review engagement financial statements.

Audit & assurance is a growing service that only some staff are qualified to work on. Therefore is looking to change auditor or review practitioner please do so well in advance and will do our best to schedule your work into our availability.

Incorporating Your Small Business


No matter the industry of your business there are tax advantages to operating out of a corporation. While the pros often outweigh the cons there is the cost/benefit analysis that will answer if incorporating is right for you.

If needing assistance incorporating a new business in Saskatchwan with Information Services Corporation (ISC), in Alberta with Service Alberta, or federally with Corporations Canada I can provide free advice and walkthroughs. Can make you the owner of corporation in 7 days.

USA Tax Filings
