Canada’s economy relies heavily on small businesses, which make up a large portion of it. However, small businesses aren’t easy to run. As tax season approaches, owners should have as little to worry about as possible. Being worry-free about taxes allows you to focus on more operational matters.

As a small business, you need an income tax accountant to reduce liability and legally manage taxation. An expert in taxation can help highlight tax deduction frameworks, for instance. By doing this, you can minimize your taxable income and see where you have tax credits you can deduct from your corporate income tax. Moreover, accountants can help identify several tax-related incentives that reduce a small business’s tax liability.

Here are five ways accountants can help your business;

  1. In Setting-Up the Business 

Business owners benefit from accountants’ financial knowledge by setting their businesses up for success. Accountants can help you choose the correct business structure (LLC, partnership, etc.). They will set up the right accounting processes at the outset so that you stay organized and in compliance with government regulations.

  1. In Growing-Up the Business 

A business can grow by working with an accountant. Business managers can benefit from accountants’ insights about cash flow management, inventory management, and business financing when their companies are experiencing growth or trying to achieve growth. Creating forecasts and budgets can also help guide a business and ensure it is aligned with its goals. The accountant will ensure a smooth transition during mergers, acquisitions, or sales of companies.

  1. In Certain Business Operations 

Monthly financial statement preparation and analysis is one of the services accountants provide to businesses. The research will assist managers in making informed decisions based on the most current data. As well as overseeing payroll, accountants can estimate tax payments throughout the year.

Similarly, it is common for businesses to work with several different financial institutions. CPA firms, banks, or other lenders can hire accountants to manage relationships and handle work that accountants must complete.

  1. Regulatory & Reporting Compliance

Keeping up with government regulations is the responsibility of accountants. Tax filings and W2 submissions are among the crucial deadlines they will ensure are met. By providing the auditor with accurate information about a company, an accountant can assist a company during an audit. This process will go smoothly if an accountant is involved because the data will be organized and accessible.

  1. In Handling Financial Blunders 

The accountant’s job is to prevent financial mistakes that could cost a company money. It’s essential to hire an accountant to avoid small and large mistakes – such as overdrafts to bank accounts or missing a tax deadline that can cause a financial major loss.
