ANALYZE YOUR BUSINESS' FINANCES WITH RATIO CALCULATORS

Ratios are a good way to evaluate the performance of your business and identify potential problems. Each ratio informs you about factors such as the earning power, solvency, efficiency, and debt load of your business. They are used to measure the relationship between 2 or more components of the financial statements and have greater meaning when the results are compared to industry standards for businesses of similar size and activity.  Find out more about financial analysis using ratios.

TAX-FREE SAVINGS ACCOUNT LIMIT INCREASED TO $5,500 STARTING IN 2013

CRA requires tax preparers to efile client returnsAn additional $500 in annual TFSA contribution room can have an important impact on the amount of tax-free savings an individual can earn. Over a 20-year period, an individual can accumulate significantly more in TFSA savings than under the original $5,000 annual contribution limit. For example, as illustrated in the graph below, a middle-income saver could accumulate about $2,340 more in tax savings on their investments than if the additional investment had been made in a taxable savings vehicle (unregistered account).

BOOK OF THE MONTH: HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE

This grandfather of all people-skills books was first published in 1937. It was an overnight hit, eventually selling 15 million copies. How to Win Friends and Influence People is just as useful today as it was when it was first published, because Dale Carnegie's understanding of human nature will never be outdated.

How to Win Friends and Influence PeopleFinancial success, Carnegie believed, is due 15 percent to professional knowledge and 85 percent to "the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people." He teaches these skills through underlying principles of dealing with people so that they feel important and appreciated.

He also emphasizes fundamental techniques for handling people without making them feel manipulated. Carnegie says you can make someone want to do what you want them to by seeing the situation from the other person's point of view and "arousing in the other person an eager want." You learn how to make people like you, win people over to your way of thinking, and change people without causing offense or arousing resentment. For instance, "let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers," and "talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person." Carnegie illustrates his points with anecdotes of historical figures, leaders of the business world, and everyday folks.
