Work Your Finances like a Boss with the New School of Finance
By Liz Schieck
Taxes, HST, GST, Revenue, Expenses, Business Viability, Sole-proprietorship vs. Incorporation.... When you work for yourself - like many mental health professionals in private practice do - your business finances ARE your personal finances, and if you're not careful, things can get very messy! This workshop is where you start to learn how to run your sole-proprietorship finances. You probably have questions, like: How do I know if something is a business expenseor a personal expense? How much should I be saving for income taxes? What about HST? What even is that? Should I be charging it? What about incorporation? Should I be doing that? And will I ever get to go on vacation again? Entrepreneurship is the future, but the money stuff can be really confusing and, let's be honest, really boring. Let us change that and get you organized so that you can work your finances like a BOSS.
Think of the New School of Finance as your financial unicorns... They are an affordable, unbiased fee-only financial planningand financial coaching firm.
