Corporate Tax Preparation and Planning Frequently Asked Questions
Tax preparation is the process of gathering and organizing all of the financial information necessary to file your business taxes accurately and on time. It is important for your business to stay compliant with tax laws and regulations and to avoid any penalties or fines.

You will need to provide financial statements, such as your income statement and balance sheet, as well as any receipts or invoices for expenses. You may also need to provide information on any employees, such as their T4 slip, also known as a Statement of Remuneration Paid, for each employee. The T4 slip reports the total income, deductions, and taxes withheld for the employee during the tax year. The business also needs to submit a T4 Summary, which is a summary of all the T4 slips submitted for the year. Additionally, a T2200 form, Declaration of Conditions of Employment, may need to be completed and kept on file for each employee.

On average, it can take several weeks to complete, but for a more accurate estimate, please speak to an Intrepidium Consulting team member.

GST (Goods and Services Tax) and HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) are both taxes applied to the sale of goods and services in Canada. The main difference between the two is that GST is a federal tax, while HST is a combination of federal and provincial taxes. GST is applied at a rate of 5% across Canada, while HST varies depending on the province or territory. For example, the HST rate in Ontario is 13% (5% GST + 8% PST). Additionally, GST applies to most goods and services, while HST only applies to specific items such as accommodation, legal services and telecommunication services. Knowing the difference between GST and HST is essential to ensure compliance and accurate tax filing.
