2012 is over and now it is time to wrap up your year end. It is better to get this done sooner rather than later, but it is always so easy to procrastinate.
Why do small business owners procrastinate? Taxes seems to always take too long to do. Taxes are very fun to do. Smalll business owners are worried that they are going to have to pay more than they want to. Sitting down and doing your taxes takes time away from your business.
Why should you get your taxes done early? Tax penalties are punitive and can be very high, especially for corporations. Understanding your taxes can help you become more strategic in some of your business decisions.
Spend 40 minutes on some best practices to wrap up last year quickly, and set yourself up for success in 2013. This will make your wrap up for 2012 easier and less confusing. Plus it will set you up for 2013.

If I have a car registered on my business and I am using it to commute to client sites to earn business, can I claim car insurance on T2 tax return ( of course small business based on less than $200K annual revenues ). I know for sure I can claim automobile maintenance, mileage, fuel etc but for insurance I am not clear. There is only one GIFI code on Income Statement to claim all types of insurance. Please anyone advise.

The person recreates the substance.
The change experiments the earth.
The stitch allocates the annoyed test.
Owned buildings at another site may be used as alternate workspace if a building cannot be occupied. This depends upon the location of the building and whether the building would be affected by the same hazard that prevented use of the primary building. The alternate facility may be a viable business recovery strategy if the building can be configured with the required equipment or existing equipment can be configured to need business requirements.
Systems and Equipment.
Evaluate these systems to determine whether they meet the needs of the program. Identify and plan to overcome emergency communication system limitations such as weak radio or cellular service or areas where a warning system cannot be heard. Upgrading this critically important system may be required. Verify that these systems are in reliable working condition.
If fuel, battery backup power or batteries are required, make sure the system can run for the required time and chargers are available. Document how to operate these systems and mark the locations of controls. Make sure the information is available during an emergency. Many of these systems also require periodic inspection, testing and maintenance in accordance with national codes and standards. Train staff so a knowledgeable person is able to operate systems and equipment.
Materials and Supplies.
Be sure to compile a list of available resources using the Emergency Response Resource Requirements and Business Continuity Resource Requirements worksheets as a guide.
Preparing for an emergency, responding to an emergency, executing business recovery strategies and other activities require resources that come from outside the business. If there were a fire in the building, you would call the fire department. Contractors and vendors may be needed to prepare a facility for a forecast storm or to help repair and restore a building, systems or equipment following an incident.
The following external resources should be identified within plan documents. Include contact information to reach them during an emergency and any additional instructions within the preparedness plan.
Public Emergency Services.
Contractors and Vendors.
