Canadian and Ontario tax law processes are continually changing, and these changes can have considerable implications on your corporate tax filing. Many new ventures fail to understand the intricacies of tax law, which sometimes leads to costly mistakes. Even experienced companies can get caught by the rapid changes that impact the tax filing process.

Corporate tax filing is significantly more complex than personal tax filing, and the penalties for incorrect or missing information can be incredibly costly. At best, you’ll be subject to penalties and fines. At worst, you’ll have to undergo a tax audit, which is time-consuming, costly, and can impact your business productivity dramatically during the audit period.

Instead of taking the risk, be sure to consider working with an experienced corporate tax accountant. Our tax team maintains up-to-date knowledge of tax law and regulations, ensuring that you’ll never get caught out by unexpected changes or amendments.

We offer customized tax solutions for all of our corporate clients. Depending on your needs, we can help you with:

  • T2 corporate income tax return filing
  • Filing nil tax returns on inactive companies
  • Converting accounting income statements into GIFI documents
  • Strategic tax planning to reduce your tax burden in coming years

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions business owners frequently ask when they consider hiring corporate accounting services

What should I look for in a corporate accountant?

When hiring a corporate accountant, there are several key qualities and qualifications that you should look for. First and foremost, the accountant should be highly skilled and knowledgeable in accounting principles and practices, as well as relevant laws and regulations. They should also be experienced in handling the financial affairs of corporate entities, and be able to provide accurate and timely financial reporting.

In addition to their technical skills, a corporate accountant should also be organized, detail-oriented, and able to manage their time effectively. They should be able to work independently and take initiative, but also be able to collaborate with other members of the finance team and other departments within the company. Strong communication skills are also important, as the accountant will need to be able to explain complex financial concepts to non-financial stakeholders.

Finally, it’s important to ensure that the accountant is trustworthy and ethical. This is especially important for a corporate accountant, as they will be handling sensitive financial information and making decisions that can have a significant impact on the company’s financial health. It’s a good idea to check references and verify the accountant’s credentials before hiring them.

Do you provide a complete accounting solution?

Yes. We offer tailored solutions to our clients. Some companies only need help with tax filing, while others want a complete, comprehensive solution—from bookkeeping to payroll management and everything in between.

When we first meet with new clients, we’ll discuss your particular needs and then customize a solution that does everything you need.

I'm a small business owner. Do I need a corporate accountant?

Whether or not you need a corporate accountant as a small business owner will depend on several factors, including the size and complexity of your business, your accounting needs, and your personal expertise and availability.

If your business is relatively small and simple, and you have the time and expertise to handle your own accounting, you may be able to manage without a corporate accountant. However, if your business is growing and becoming more complex, or if you don’t have the time or expertise to handle your accounting needs, it may be worth hiring a corporate accountant to help you manage your finances.

A corporate accountant can provide a range of services, including bookkeeping, financial reporting, tax preparation and planning, and advice on financial matters. They can also help you identify areas where you can save money and improve your financial performance. In many cases, the benefits of having a corporate accountant on your team can outweigh the cost of hiring one.

It’s also worth considering the potential risks of not having a corporate accountant. Poorly managed finances can lead to financial problems for your business, such as cash flow issues, tax problems, and even legal issues. A corporate accountant can help you avoid these problems by ensuring that your financial affairs are in order and in compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

In short, whether or not you need a corporate accountant will depend on your individual circumstances. If you’re unsure, it may be worth consulting with a financial professional to determine the best course of action for your business.

How does a typical corporate accountant pricing structure work?

The pricing structure for corporate accounting services can vary depending on the accountant or accounting firm you hire, as well as the specific services you need. In general, corporate accountants may charge by the hour, by the project, or on a retainer basis.

Hourly pricing is based on the number of hours that the accountant spends working on your project. This can be a good option if you only need a small amount of accounting work done, or if you’re not sure how long the project will take. However, hourly pricing can be unpredictable, as it’s difficult to estimate how many hours the accountant will need to complete the work.

Project-based pricing is based on the scope of the project, rather than the number of hours the accountant spends on it. This can be a good option if you have a specific accounting project that needs to be completed, and you have a clear idea of what needs to be done. Project-based pricing can provide more certainty, as you’ll know in advance how much the project will cost.

Retainer-based pricing is based on a monthly or annual fee that covers a set of agreed-upon accounting services. This can be a good option if you need ongoing accounting support, as it provides a predictable cost and allows you to budget for your accounting expenses. Retainer-based pricing may also offer additional benefits, such as access to the accountant’s expertise and advice on an ongoing basis.

In addition to these pricing models, corporate accountants may also charge additional fees for specialized services, such as tax preparation or financial consulting. It’s a good idea to discuss pricing and fees with the accountant or firm you’re considering hiring, and to get a written estimate or proposal that outlines the services to be provided and the associated costs. This will help you understand what you can expect to pay for the accounting services you need.
