Federal Proposed Tax Changes...How they may affect your business.
The South Cariboo Chamber urges you to read the following and learn how the proposed taxes may affect your business. More information on how to get your voice heard will be coming in the next newsletter.
The following links have information of the Federal Government proposed tax changes that may affect your business.
From BC Chamber of Commerce
"The government of Canada has just proposed the most radical tax overhaul in 50 years... "
BC Chamber of Commerce is particularly worried about the impact on business from (1) a new tax on investment income in a corporation and (2) tough new rules for compensation in family businesses.
This is an issue where the power of the network can affect change if we all work together and use our voice of business.
Business groups across Canada are uniting on this front. 35 organizations from across the country have come together to form the Coalition for Small Business Tax Fairness -a unified voice to oppose the federal government's tax proposals that would dramatically change the way incorporated small businesses are taxed in Canada.

The window of opportunity is closing. The Liberal and Conservative caucuses meet immediately after Labour Day and we are aiming to have MPs go to the meetings with businesses' comments in hand.
To help businesses have their voices heard, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce created a number of pieces to share with Chamber members.
From the Canadian Chamber of Commerce
"If your business is incorporated, you could be facing a larger tax bill and big compliance costs from the government's new proposals..."
From the Canadian Federation of Independent Business
'These changes won't just affect the wealthy as the government has implied. They directly target small business owners who make daily sacrifices to keep their businesses alive, support their families and create jobs in their communities..."
