Preparing & Filing US Corporate Income Tax Returns
If your business has operations in the United States or earns income in the US, you are subject to US tax codes and must file corporate income taxes in the US. The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is one of the more officious governing bodies you’ll ever come across, and its rules and regulations are both highly complex and ever-changing. To avoid falling on the wrong side of IRS business tax code and continue to do business in the US, you’ll need to file US corporate income taxes in full compliance.
At Smith & West, we have specialists on our Ottawa-based team who are experienced with US corporate income taxes and have full knowledge of IRS corporate tax code. Find out how we can help with your US corporate income tax needs.
Why Your Small Business Needs a Tax Accountant in Ottawa
Accounting is a crucial business function when beginning a small firm. It gives business owners the clearest insight into the performance of their operations. Additionally, for tax and regulatory reasons, entrepreneurs must maintain a wealth of records of their small businesses.
- Forecast Business Outlook
Entrepreneurs typically draft a business strategy that contains financial reports, an economic outlook, and projected expenditures. Lenders and investors rely largely on this accounting information to make sure that the business owner has a clear understanding of the expected financial results.
- Plan Budget
Making a budget is a crucial accounting task when beginning a small business. Budgets lay out the costs associated with various business activities. Businesses may set aside money for recruiting staff, marketing plans, stock purchases, and other forms of business expenses. Entrepreneurs can save money by adhering to a budget and avoiding spending it on non-essential business expenditures.
- Determine Revenue and Profits
Most often, a business will gauge its profitability through accounting. Businesses must determine how effectively they are employing their resources to produce services as well as how the cost of their inventory compares to their profit margin.
- Gain Insight
Small businesses may seek guidance from a certified public accountant. They offer a wealth of education, expertise, or skill when assisting entrepreneurs in arranging their business accounting processes. Business owners may also want expert advice when submitting tax returns and making sure all business-related expenses are covered at year’s end.
