Is your small business hurt by flooding? Why not ask CRA for relief?

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) understands that natural disasters like flooding force business owners and self-employed persons to focus their efforts on protecting their company, home and family rather than completing tax-related obligations. If flooding is causing you to miss a filing or payment deadline, we can help you learn about seeking relief from penalties and interest.
 

Playing music in your place of business? You may need licences

There are many benefits to playing music at your business, but you can’t pop in a CD or stream from on-line without giving consideration to the copyright of the artist or creator. The Copyright Board of Canada requires anyone who plays music in public, including businesses, to obtain licences.

Are you paying Employment Insurance for family members?
