February 22nd kicks of personal tax season in Canada. I started The Mobile Accountant in 2016, making this my fifth year helping individuals and small business owners. I have been very fortunate to help so many of you, and have been able to grow my business year after year.
I know 2020 was difficult for so many people, families, and businesses, so this year I am hoping to extend my reach and help many more navigate their personal and business tax scenarios.
My wife Melanie passed along an article last week that talked about all of the tax changes Canadians will see this year. Whether it’s the new working from home tax credit, or all of the different government subsidy programs that have been offered, there is a lot of new information to navigate through. Melanie is a creator and communicator, so for her, taking a deep dive into different tax scenarios and implications isn’t very appealing.
As a small business owner myself, I have spent hours researching to try and understand these programs, and the associated risks and benefits. This, coupled with seeing so many individuals and small businesses struggle through these unprecedented times is fueling my desire to help more than ever before. There is a lot of information and programs out there, and it can be daunting. I am eager and willing to help, and I have been doing the research.
As someone who is pretty analytical and loves a good tool to support efficiencies, Melanie the communicator constantly reminds me that personal engagement is equally important. To that end, she helped me put together a newsletter she worked on over the weekend. It went out this morning — if you didn’t receive it, be sure to subscribe so you get access in the future. I am committing to putting out as much information as possible to help people navigate tax season, and any personal or business tax implications this pandemic has had on you.
If there is anything that I can help you out with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Stay healthy and I look forward to connecting with you soon.
