Tom McFeat  recently wrote an article in CBC News  about your medical expenses. In the article as a tax payer you were advised that ‘you do need to do some homework, in terms of keeping your medical expense receipts.’ It's something that is not easy to do over the course of a year unless you make a conscious effort to put the receipts aside.’

At C2online our tools will help you to ensure you maximize on these claims, save money and save time by simplifying the tasks for you:

Deduct your Gluten Free Groceries: You must calculate the incremental cost to ensure you receive the medical expense claim.  Incremental cost is the increased cost of purchasing a GF product as compared to the cost of a similar non-GF product. It is calculated by subtracting the cost of a non-GF product from the cost of a GF product. C2online provides the calculation in your worksheet for you.

Deduct the travel: If you are traveling more than 40 km one way for medical reasons, you can claim the trips on your personal tax return for a medical deduction.  Keep a diary of trips taken for medical reasons to use for a medical deduction on your personal tax return a medical critical to know the total number of kilometers your automobile was driven during the year for any medical purposes when you have traveled over 40 km one way. 

The article suggests you contact your drugstore for a complete list to save time – We have a form to request for medical receipts from your pharmacist.

Eligible expenses that you claim can get missed and this list states the ones most commonly missed.

Disability tax credit will provide those taxpayers that are the in-home caregivers to a parent or grandparent age 65 or older.  You need help to ensure that you are claiming this eligible credit correctly and receiving the appropriate amount of credit this tool will assist you.

Re: Bookkeeping Basics for the New Entrepreneur and the 5 Mistakes You Need To Avoid
Great blog post! I can agree with everything mentioned here. Every business, regardless of size, needs some kind of bookkeeping system, whether it's manual or digital. In addition, every bookkeeper needs to be trained by a certified bookkeeping trainer. Bookkeeping training is really important because of the skills and experience it provides to all the bookkeeping students. In turn, this minimizes the risk for all the mistakes mentioned in your blog and ensures smooth-sailing. I look forward to reading more from you.
