Customer Question
I own a small...

I own a small business as sole proprietor. Is there a way to separate my business income tax from my personal income tax

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

Can I use carbon copy's of Pay cheques to my one employee for my taxes. He will not issue me an invoice

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

No just curious is all. I have had to pay substantial taxes last year as I filed everything under personal. Could not claim the amount I paid in wages as I had no receipts from my worker

Before we begin, are you inquiring for Canada tax or US? I must let you know that I'm unfamiliar with Canada and it's seems that is where you reside. Is this correct?
