The world has changed. While Canada has faced pandemics in the past, this is the first time we are seeing an aggressive response rate at this level to contain the spread of the virus. Of course, these are stressful times as we move through uncharted waters, but the important thing to remember is that all these measures are put in place to ensure Canadians can remain as healthy as possible. Things will return to a routine – perhaps a new one – but a routine, nonetheless. As your professional CPA firm focused on the needs of Canadian small business and Canadian e-commerce businesses, we are here for you, now – and more than ever.
Small Businesses – Why It’s Important to Retain Your CPA
Information on how employers must handle employees’ sick time, and possible business interruptions, is evolving. For busy small businesses, these changes can be stressful and difficult to quickly implement. AF Accounting can help you with the required paperwork, and help you understand your obligations.
E-Commerce – We Have the Online Tools You Need
As Canadians take steps to self-isolate and to avoid large crowds, the need for online services increases. Those that already sell products and services online must have best practices in place to ensure compliance and organization. If your e-commerce business increases in sales or orders, do you already have a strong accounting foundation in place to ensure you can meet your obligations for Canada Revenue Agency and Revenu Quebec?
AF Accounting has programs just for e-commerce sellers. We are gold partners with Xero, a cloud-based accounting system that makes it easy for you to import banking transactions, create and send invoices, generate reports, and more. Xero is a popular choice for small businesses, but especially useful for sellers on Amazon, Shopify, and Etsy. We also offer A2X, an online, cloud-based accounting system made for Amazon Marketplace sellers.
