Never give out your credit card to anyone at the door or on the phone!

Unless your name is Rockefeller, you will need a mortgage from your bank or trust company to provide you with the money to purchase your home.


Not all mortgage s are created equal, so please do your homework or trust the folks at The Money Cafe to help you. 

Retirement & Pensions

There are quite a few funding vehicles for planning your retirement, including the recently launched TFSA.


If your company provides a pension ad you purchase RRSP's annually, make sure you do not over over your contribution limit.

Taxes

They say there are 2 things in life you cannot avoid; Death and Taxes..


Yes, we will die one day, however, we pay taxes every single day without missing a beat.


At work we pay income taxes, at the grocery we're paying taxes, to pump gas, were paying taxes.


Our recommendation, please engage with an accountant who has years of experience and knows the Canada Tax Act pretty well.

General

Generally speaking, being organized is the 1st step towards running a business, filing your annual taxes on time and will also prevent you from paying penalties and fees if you miss key payment or filing dates...so organization is the key.
