What About Other Tax Accounts such as HST, Payroll, Import & Export accounts?

You should familiarize yourself with the tax accounts required for your corporation and when they are required for your business.

HST – Is a Trust account with The Canada Revenue Agency. A Trust account belongs to CRA and held in Trust by the corporation/business. It is not required, until the corporation/business earns more than $30,000.00 per year.

There is a common question we have seen people asking on different platforms:

Do I Need a Lawyer to Incorporate in Ontario?

No, you do not need a lawyer to Incorporate in Ontario. In most cases, the incorporation parameters are straightforward when you have minimal complexities to your business. We can address any of these areas with you. Should you have a more complex situation, we would recommend legal counsel.
