It’s no secret: tax season is stressful, especially if you’re a business owner. It’s the time of year when you finally have to address and organize that mountain of documents and receipts sitting in your filing cabinet (or shoebox) in order to meet the April deadline (or June if you’re self-employed). You also have to consider what taxable benefits your business can receive; whether or not you really have ALL your company’s receipts; and how quickly and efficiently you can get this done. We get the stress, that’s why we want you to learn how to manage it.
As we mentioned, there are many factors to consider when it comes to sorting out your company’s finances and filing your taxes. If you’re just starting to do your businesses bookkeeping, it can be daunting to get your head around the sheer amount of work. Not to mention, the CRA tends to spend a lot of time auditing businesses. So it’s important to ensure you’re doing things right.
QuickBooks was founded by 1983 by Intuit and has been a leading accounting tool for everything from personal to corporate taxes, and in-between. There is no denying that hiring an accountant can take this weight off your shoulders; but, as a savvy business owner why wouldn’t you consider this cost-effective alternative? According to Stokes Visca & Company LLP “you can use [QuickBooks] to run a $5 million or $25 million business for a few hundred bucks.” So we think, with a little patience and the right know-how, you can learn how to effectively manage your own bookkeeping using this simple tool.
