TAXABLE BENEFITS: A GUIDE FROM THE CANADA REVENUE AGENCY

Taxable benefits are an area to which business owners should pay close attention. Many benefits which, on the surface, may not appear to be taxable actually are and it's important to protect your business and your employees by knowing the difference. For example, a car given to an employee for business use would not be taxable. However, if that employee also uses the vehicle for personal purposes, it would then become a taxable benefit.

To help clarify the details of what is considered by CRA to be a taxable benefit and what is not, the agency has prepared an Employer's Guide to Taxable Benefits and Allowances.

One of our staff followed the steps in the article and is also now saving big on her services with Shaw!

Independent full-time students enrolled in a post-secondary program quality for the discount. Valid student idea and proof of enrolment must be provided in order to activate the reduced rates. With savings that significant, it's definitely worth a phone call and a trip to the nearest Shaw office!

RECOMMENDED READING: GOOD TO GREAT - WHY SOME COMPANIES MAKE THE LEAP AND OTHERS DON'T

Order Good to Great from Amazon.caFive years ago, Jim Collins asked the question, "Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?" In Good to Great Collins, the author of Built to Last, concludes that it is possible, but finds there are no silver bullets.

Making the transition from good to great doesn't require a high-profile CEO, the latest technology, innovative change management, or even a fine-tuned business strategy. At the heart of those rare and truly great companies was a corporate culture that rigorously found and promoted disciplined people to think and act in a disciplined manner.
