FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

I am a _____ and need ______. Can you help me?

Almost always, the answer to this question is yes! As a team of accountants, we provide a wide range of services and support. But even if it’s not something we specifically provide, we can always point you in the right direction, and refer you to other professionals we trust.

Why should I use a CPA firm?

While you can get financial statements and business taxes completed at other service providers, at a CPA firm you will have greater peace of mind knowing that you are being taken care of by professionals. Becoming a CPA requires at least 4 years of post-secondary education, followed by a 3-year articling period, capped off by a 3-day exam! Follow that up with mandatory annual professional development, and you know that the CPA you’re working with is trustworthy, educated and capable.

You’ve mentioned ‘tax specialist’.

Are you just extra busy in April? At Volution, we have a group of seasoned tax specialists – much like a team of medical specialists! Most accountants are generalists, just like your family doctor, but our team would be more comparable to resident heart surgeons. So, when dealing with complicated problems in specific areas of the Income Tax Act, your accountant  should recommend tax specialists in that area – specialists like us.

How much does a business tax return cost?

This depends on a lot of different factors, affected by simple things (such as volume of transactions and quality of bookkeeping) to advanced (like foreign property or investments). The price is also greatly affected by the type of business you have. For example, sole proprietorships require fewer hours than corporate returns. We recommend getting in touch with us so we can provide you with a more specific quote.

How long does it take to file a business tax return?

This varies based on the complexity of your business affairs and completeness of the information you provide. We require two weeks at minimum, but can often take more time.

Why do corporate tax returns cost more than personal ones?

When preparing a sole proprietor’s tax returns, our primary focus is on income, i.e. how much did you earn? When preparing corporate tax returns, we also ask about your financial position – how much you own and owe – and verify those numbers as well. Simply put, there’s a lot more that goes into a corporate tax return, and that’s why they cost more.

How can you help my farm?

Agricultural businesses boast many unique aspects in both operations and tax laws. This adds an equal amount of complexity and opportunity to the mix. At Volution, we have the experience and knowledge to help you find more savings, and give you advice on how to move forward with your farm.

When should I incorporate my business?

This depends on your business and your plans for the future. Some businesses (such as freelancers or those that don’t have employees) may choose to never incorporate. However, other businesses (especially those with more liabilities) may choose to incorporate very early. To see if incorporating your business is the right call,  Book a Free, 60-minute Consultation.

Should I go into a partnership, a joint venture or sole proprietorship?
