Small business is the acknowledged back bone of the Canadian economy.  According to the BC Chamber of Commerce, BC small business (defined as fewer than 50 employees) makes up 98% of businesses in BC and accounts for 56% of private sector employment.  And drilling deeper, 82% of that 98% are considered micro-businesses with fewer than five employees.

Collectively across our great nation, small business produces about one third of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product. Recognizing this contribution to Canada, CRA offers a unique tax design to support entrepreneurs that requires some special accounting procedures.

To this end, JBS BUSINESS SERVICES can provide your proprietorship, partnership or small to medium sized private corporation with year-end accounting and tax preparation, whether or not JBS BUSINESS SERVICES completes your company’s regular bookkeeping.

We will review, record and report such things applicable to your company as:

  • determining allowable input and administrative expenses
  • reporting meals/entertainment proportionally as legislated
  • differentiating promotion expense from entertainment
  • explaining the home office option and its associated write-offs
  • identifying applicable vehicle expenses appropriately
  • justifying items as lease versus capitalized expense
  • calculating capital cost allowance
  • employing family members
  • computing employer’s payroll deductions expense
  • reconciling GST and PST
  • identifying due (or late) government business remittances
  • discussing benefits of incorporating your proprietorship, if appropriate

Formal Business Planning Consultation Opportunities

The initial stage is strictly a snapshot in time of your business health vis-à-vis other similar businesses. Presenting a comparison of your business to your industry, it answers the question, “Where am I today?”

The second stage projects 5 years into the future.  This is an extrapolation with no changes to any variables – your recent past dictates the future.  In addition to providing proforma statements, cash flow projections and profitability forecasts, it will also provide a calculation of the current value of your business in today’s dollars – What might my business be worth if I were to sell today?”

The third stage is where benefits can be gained by business planning. This is where “what if” scenarios are played out and these changes become quantifiable outcomes. This is a useful in two ways:

               1.   To test the impact of changes outside your control, “What would happen if a competitor opened up … or … what would happen if my major customer stopped buying from me?”

               2.   To test various approaches to change that are in your control, “If I where to automate this process, I could drive my labour cost down and therefore improve my gross profit by $$$ … or … if I were to expand my product offering by adding these items for sale, I could increase sales revenue by $$$

Simply put, What can I do today to positively impact my long-term profits and ultimately the sale value of my business?”
