Allowable Tax Deductions
As a business, you are entitled to claim a wide range of allowable tax deductions. This can include everything from:
- office administrative expenses
- business travel
Provided of course, that these expenses are legitimate and reasonable.
In many cases, these expenses can turn into tax losses, which can be deducted against other sources of income. If you are just starting to report a new business, Canada Revenue Agency will probably accept “start-up” losses for three years or so. Generally, Canada Revenue Agency’s tolerance to loss claims for a number of years may depend on whether the “business” has a personal or hobby appearance.
