Increased taxes for small business owners

taxes-tax-evasion-police-handcuffs

 

Our Canadian Liberal government wants to increase the income tax rate for small businesses.  As a small business owner, I cringe at the significance this has for me.

Like myself, many small business owners have risked starting a business based on a particular passion and taken many years to build a clientele and show a profit.  Tax breaks are few and far between making it possible to follow a dream and succeed, but rarely get rich.  Some years are good, others great, yet some not so good.  Proceeds from the good and great years must be used to subsidize the not so good years; you know the saying “save for a rainy day.”

 

Both owners and employees of small businesses are, for the most part, dedicated and passionate individuals that do not get benefits or pensions or severance packages if the business goes under.  The absence of these “perks” creates a great risk for both the owner and the employees.  All these new tax rules will do is squash the dream of entrepreneurs with a passion whether the business is already up and running or still in the planning stage.

Does the Liberal government really believe that increasing the income tax levels of small business owners will significantly build their coffers?  The money gained will be a drop in the bucket compared to the massive national debt owed. They might want to look elsewhere for bigger fish and leave us little guys alone.

Christine’s Younique Virtual Party

col_younique

Christine is the wonderful woman who was my son’s Brazilian girlfriend’s (Stella Bella) host mom while she attended grades 11 and 12 as an exchange student here in Kanata (Ottawa).

Younique is the first direct-sales company to market and sell high-quality makeup for every skin type through the use of social media. Instead of the traditional in-home party, you can invite virtually anyone anywhere to attend (shop) at your party.   If you can share a link, you can host a party.  The concept is similar to in-home parties in that the more people purchase at your party, the more free stuff (products) you get.

To support Christine’s new venture, follow the link (before July 3) to attend her PARTY

Gardens4u website revised and updated

Check.   Another job on my list completed…

My business website GARDENS4U has recently been revised using a different theme and color scheme.  It has also been updated with pictures from last season.

My to-do list is getting shorter and the days are getting longer.  That means I should be able to get out into my gardens soon (I hope) before I turn into this lady…
