Freelance/Sole Proprietor Session/Partnership Session
When you go out on your own, there is a ton of information you need to ensure you’re earning enough money for your life, preparing for taxes properly, maximizing expenses, prepping for GST/HST, choosing your ownership structure and budgeting for inconsistent cash flow. The internet is an information overload and you can get bad information. Let us help you make sure you’re on the right track and help you feel in control of your finances!

Here are the types of things we can go over!

Budgeting with inconsistent cash flow

  • Breaking down income targets/feasibility testing
  • Systematic banking (which is worth its weight in gold) for freelancers… it can exist!
  • Budgeting cash flow to ensure that you survive through your slow seasons

Tax Planning

  • What you need to withhold for income taxes, how to do it
  • How to maximize expenses.
  • How to track and organize income/expenses for tax time
  • Quarterly installments planning

HST/GST

  • HST/GST 101 (who, what, where, when , how and why?)
  • Quick HST vs Long HST (which is best for you)
  • How to register and what to do when you have

Ownership structure

  • Risk/Reward for incorporating vs sole proprietor vs partnership (Having a Business Number with the CRA doesn’t mean you’re incorporated.) Note, we don’t cover any of the legal issues with this. We look at the financial risk/reward from a tax planning point of view only and always suggest speaking with a business lawyer as well.
  • How to register your business, when you need to.

Price:  $365 + HST/GST (and, we are a biz expense)

OPTION: Customized notes from meeting: $155 + HST
