From a small town called Dundalk, Co. Louth. My business started as a hobby there, grew in Canada and now I'm offering my expertise to clients. Although slow to gain traction.
I'd like to try and figure out a way to get by for this year without an accountant if possible just so I'm not digging any further into the red.
First off, where from in Ireland?
Second, I am a lawyer in America, and I can guarantee you that I would have charged you $850 for the advice that Captain Morgan gave you free for nothing. Get a certified accountant, by whatever name they use in Canada, and follow her advice. It's your best course.
These days, mostly I consult on international telecommunications issues and aviation law. Spectrum allocations, cross-border interference issues, telephone long-distance termination fees, drone law, privacy, aviation fees and taxes, and suchlike.
In the past I've done business law, corporate law, contracts, and a bit of criminal law. I also worked on the Cobell case on mining rights and the Indian Mineral Trust Fund.
Appreciate the overview of your practice.
Although I shouldn't be surprised at the level and degree of specialization in your field, holy crap, that is quite a niche area of practice.
Hi guys, first post here but I'm hoping to pick someones brain about taxes as a small business. I'm from Ireland so all I know about taxes, doesn't apply here in Canada. To be clear, I'm not trying to avoid paying or hide cash. I just want to be sure I'm not shorting myself and ultimately my business.
