  • Tips for tax professionals

    As a trusted advisor to small business, you are key to our effort to reduce the small business income tax gap.

    Here's how you can help your small business clients report correctly:

    • Understand their business, not just their tax. Get to know your clients and their business so you're better positioned to help them report correctly.
    • Check that they have chosen a business structure that best suits their needs.
    • Talk to them about good record keeping practices and using technology (like accounting and point of sale software) to run their business.
    • Make sure you get all the information you need to report correctly. Your clients aren't tax experts and they don't know what they don't know. Ask them some questions to ensure you have the full picture.
    • Where possible, work with the other tax professionals they use. Then you can ensure you are all on the same page and your figures match up.
