Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Provincial Sale Tax (PST) Filing

Businesses that provide certain services or products are required to file GST and PST regularly. How much is owed to the government is dependent on how much of the business has earned and how much it has spent, hence the necessity for bookkeeping.

As your bookkeeper we track, calculate and file GST and PST returns for your business monthly, quarterly or annually.


Payroll

Tracking and calculating payroll can be tricky. Each company with employees is required to calculate and pay monthly or quarterly source deductions; this is the taxes withheld from an employees paycheque for government taxes. Employers are also required to file Record of Employment’s (ROE) for any inactive employees.

We can prepare and complete payrolls for businesses of any type and size, whether employees are paid via cheque, direct deposit, or e-transfer, can calculate monthly or quarterly source deductions and file employee ROE’s. 


WorkSafe BC Filing

Certain businesses are required to file WCB reports monthly, quarterly, or annually. The rate and amount due is dependent on a business services or products, number of employees, and payroll paid or subcontractor rate. 

We can calculate, file, and complete WCB returns for businesses of any type or size.
