What are the steps when filing a small business tax return?

The first step is to determine your business structure, which could be a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or another form. Different structures have varying tax implications.

Report all sources of business income, including sales, services rendered, rental income, interest, dividends, and any other revenue generated by the business.

Deduct eligible business expenses to reduce your taxable income. These may include rent, utilities, salaries, wages, office supplies, advertising, travel expenses, and more. Make sure to keep accurate records and receipts for all expenses claimed.

If you have acquired depreciable assets (e.g., equipment, vehicles) for your business, you may claim capital cost allowance to recover a portion of their cost over time. Different assets have different CCA rates.

If your business earns over a certain threshold, you may need to register for and charge GST/HST on your goods and services. You will need to remit the collected taxes to the CRA.

If you have employees, you must deduct and remit income tax, Canada Pension Plan (CPP) contributions, and Employment Insurance (EI) premiums from their paychecks. You will also contribute the employer’s portion of CPP and EI.

If you’re a sole proprietor or in a partnership, you’re responsible for both the employee and employer portions of CPP contributions. This is known as the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) self-employment tax.

Provide T4 slips to employees and T5 slips to report dividends paid to shareholders. If applicable, issue T4A slips for other types of income, such as fees for services provided to your business.

Maintain accurate and organized financial records, receipts, invoices, and other documentation to support your business income, expenses, and tax deductions.

Small business tax returns are generally due on June 15, but any taxes owing must be paid by April 30 to avoid interest charges. If you have a balance owing, you may be subject to penalties and interest if you miss the deadline.

Be aware of potential tax credits and deductions available for small businesses, such as the Small Business Deduction, Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credits, and other industry-specific incentives.

Many small business owners use tax preparation software or hire an accountant to assist with preparing and filing their tax returns accurately.

Tax preparers handle sensitive business information, so maintaining confidentiality and adhering to ethical standards is crucial.
