The Minister of National Revenue announces expanded service to help small businesses
“Raised in a family of entrepreneurs myself, I have made it a priority to ensure that we are offering Canadian small businesses the best service possible. With the expansion of the Liaison Officer service, the CRA will now be able to help even more small businesses comply with their tax obligations.”
-The Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue
“Our government is making it easier for Canadian businesses by reducing the small business tax rate; asking credit card companies to lower the fees they charge small businesses; and cutting red tape. The Canada Revenue Agency’s expansion of its free Liaison Officer service to small incorporated companies will help small businesses more easily meet their tax obligations, so they can have more time to do what they do best, grow their business and create jobs from coast to coast to coast.”
-The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion
Over 130 liaison officers are available to help small businesses across Canada, including the Northern territories, understand their tax obligations.
Liaison officers currently visit approximately 9,500 unincorporated small businesses each year. By broadening the reach and scope of the Liaison Officer service to include incorporated small businesses, the CRA expects to help an additional 1,700 businesses per year.
The expansion of the Liaison Officer service responds to needs expressed by small businesses during the Serving You Better consultations, which provide a forum for small and medium businesses and accountants to share valuable insights which the CRA can use to make its programs and services more streamlined and client-focused.
