Corporate Tax Return Preparation
With few exceptions, such as Crown corporations, all corporations within Canada must file a corporate income tax return (T2) with the CRA each year. This is true even if there isn't a payable tax. Even inactive, tax-exempt, and not-for-profit organizations must file a corporate tax return. In some instances, even non-resident corporations may be required to file a return.
There's only one thing that makes corporate income tax returns more complicated — trying to do them in house. The accountants of Bazar McBean LLP are here to bring clarity and accountability to your business' corporate tax returns.
Missing Out on SR&ED Tax Credits?
Research and development are essential to fuelling Canada’s diverse industries. Canada has many federal programs aimed at nurturing innovation and improving environmental best practices. This means there are numerous opportunities for your business to reduce its tax burdens and increase its revenue. Just ask yourself the following questions:
- Is your business developing or improving a product?
- Are you improving a process or manufacturing technique?
- Is your operation changing its processes to become more environmentally friendly?
- Is your business development new software?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, your Canadian business may qualify for a Scientific Research & Experimental Development tax credit.
The great things about the SR&ED tax credit program is that it is a refundable tax credit, meaning your business will get a refund regardless of your operation's profitability (or lack of profitability).
The Scientific Research & Experimental Development tax credit program isn't just for those looking to develop scientific and medical breakthroughs; research and development can be integrated into many business' daily activities. The only catch is that your business should be a CCPC, or "Canadian-controlled private corporation.” Money spent in research and development can qualify for a 35% income tax credit for investments up to $3 million. Any research expenditures above this amount may qualify for a 20% income tax credit — the same portion allotted to research and development carried out by trusts, proprietorships, and corporations within Canada.
Because of the amount of money at stake, SR&ED tax incentives are totally worth the trouble of filing a claim. Bazar McBean LLP is here for all your income tax credit assistance needs — schedule a consultation today!
Help with CRA Audits
While audits can be a pain for businesses of all sizes, they do help ensure fairness, integrity, and accountability in Canada's tax system — all attributes necessary in maintaining a healthy, robust economy. But, a CRA audit can be time-consuming and stressful for businesses of all sizes. Having well-maintained records and a licensed accountant to cooperate with the CRA are assets that will become invaluable during a Canada Revenue Agency audit.
Has your business been selected for an audit through the Canada Revenue Agency? The Oakville accounting firm of Bazar McBean LLP can represent your business in working with the CRA and make the process as smooth as possible. Simply give us a call today to get started.
