Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to register for a GST number?
You must register for a GST/HST account if, as part of your business, you provide taxable property and services in Canada AND no longer qualify as a small supplier. Read more.
Should I open a TFSA?
If you’ve read about the Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), you know that any contributions to a TFSA are tax-free even when they’re withdrawn. While this is a valuable incentive to save, Dene Roberts Inc. understands that every individual’s financial needs are unique. We encourage you, therefore, to book an appointment with us to discuss which savings and investment options would be the most effective for you.

Corporations’ taxes are due 6 months following the end of the calendar year. Interest is applied after 90 days.
Personal income taxes are due each year on April 30th.
Sole proprietors’ taxes are due each year on June 15th.
