An Introduction to Bookkeeping-Essentials.ca, your dedicated resource for Canadian bookkeeping and tax compliance. A tailored extension of Bookkeeping-Essentials.com, this website serves to address the specific bookkeeping and tax compliance needs of Canadian businesses and self-employed individuals.

Motivated by a perceived need for such a dedicated service, I have transitioned my extensive library from the original site to foster more focused and relevant support for Canadian users.

Despite enjoying my retirement, my commitment to sharing useful and practical bookkeeping knowledge remains. This Canadian focused compliance site draws from over a decade of notes published on Bookkeeping-Essentials.com.

The design and content of the new site are influenced by my experience as a retired professional bookkeeper. The site is easy to navigate with a straightforward menu featuring compliance obligations, various tax categories, and audit ready books advice.

Bookkeeping-Essentials.ca extends an invitation to small business owners and home-based bookkeepers in Canada to explore and make use of this new resource. Your journey towards efficient and CRA compliant bookkeeping starts here!

P.S. Bookkeeping-Essentials.com is not going away. It will just focus more on good, basic bookkeeping practices for Canadian and US bookkeepers and small business owners and less on tax.
