Nobody really wants to pay income tax, but the law says that if you have taxable income, then you have an income tax liability. Given that your business would probably qualify as a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation (CCPC), your combined Federal and Provincial tax rate on corporate taxable income under $500,000 is approximately 13.5% (BC). Your primary obligation to CRA is to report your income. You are then allowed to deduct legitimate expenses incurred to earn that income, inclusive of salaries paid to yourself. Utilizing the services of a Chartered Accountant will be well worth the effort in this regard. Barry J. Watson CA. Direct Line 604-714-1999
