Somethings to advise you on.
It’s the age of the freelancer, and with more and more people preferring (or needing) to work as independent contractors, it’s crucial that they know how to properly deal with their taxes.
In Canada, employees of a company receive a T4 (Statement of Remuneration Paid) slip, showing the tax deductions an employer has made on their behalf. But if you’re self-employed, the question of what to use in place of a T4 slip becomes a little more confusing.
Is Freelancing Running a Business?
Yes. If you are a freelancer in Canada, it’s important to note that you are operating as a business entity. Whether you’re working full-time as a freelancer, or hustling after your day job, it’s still considered running a business. This means that you must comply with the applicable legal and regulatory requirements, such as paying taxes on the income you earn.
In Canada, you don’t have to register a sole proprietorship business if you’re using your legal name as the business name. If you decide to use a different name to operate under, you must obtain a business name registration.
When filing your invoices for payment, they should have your legal name or your registered business name on them.
Canadian freelancers should also note that when it comes to GST/HST, there is a Small Supplier Exemption which you can apply for, but only if you make less than $30,000 annually.
Declaring Tax to CRA
Any income you generate from freelancing must be declared on your income tax. As a freelancer in Canada, you declare your freelancing payments as business income on the Form T2125.
Form T2125 is part of your T1 tax return. If your business is a sole proprietorship or partnership, you’ll file a T1 business income tax form—the same income tax return you use to file your personal income taxes.
A contractor or self-employed person who provides services to a larger company (like Naturaw) will be sent a T4A form, which shows how much the contractor was paid. For those filing a T4 or T4A, your deadline is April 30. However, if you’re filing a T2125, the deadline is June 17.
Still feeling a little overwhelmed? If you don’t fancy filing your taxes by yourself, don’t worry, there are other options. Agencies like H&R Block or TurboTax do all the work for you, once you can provide the necessary documentation.
