Trades - Construction, Contractors and Skilled Tradespeople

 


 

Being your own boss in the trades means 3 things.

1) You work on site during the day, taking care of clients needs.

2) During the rest of the time, including sleep, you: squeeze in marketing and sales, you manage employee and sub-contractor time, projects, billing, receipts, and escalating costs. And, if there's time, you take care of your personal / corporate financial and tax health.

3) There's never enough time.

Not Meeting Deadlines?

Tired of cutting corners and still not meeting financial deadlines and obligations?

With a local tax specialist dedicated to your business, you'll meet all your financial deadlines and obligations ... AND your accuracy is going to skyrocket!

Get Caught Up ...

Getting behind with your accounting & taxes is so common. Unfortunately, once your finances go off the rails, you can fail quickly, as mistakes and missed deadlines compound the problem.

It’s time to get caught up. No matter how far behind you are, it can be done! There isn't anything we haven't seen.

Stay Caught Up!

With an FBC tax professional, you no longer have to worry about whether you’re doing everything right, or on time. You don't have to worry about if you'll receive a big fine for a late tax payment, payroll remittance or inaccurate tax or payroll calcs. You focus on your clients, we'll focus on your paperwork.

Reduce CRA Risk

For people in the trades, it's tough to know where to start when trying to protect against all the CRA Audit rulings. How do you know what records to keep in order to comply with any requests for information?

The proper account structure and processes will reduce the risk an audit will occur in the first place (by helping with more accurate tax returns). And, it also reduces the likelihood that CRA will rule against you if it goes to court.

You Are Not Alone

As an FBC Member, you’ll never have to deal with government officials alone—we will act as your audit representative on any challenge of your returns for income tax or GST/HST. Timing is critical in such matters since there are deadlines for filing challenges. We have a wide range of tax and audit professionals to help you with any aspect of your personal & corporate journey.
