TAX FILING AND TAX PLANNING IS A TEAM EFFORT
Having an accountant prepare your taxes is a great strategy—not just those with more complex tax situations. Accountants are familiar with regular changes to the tax code and stay current in professional development.
So why would you add a CFP professional from like Helm into the tax planning mix? An accountant’s job is to file your taxes with the maximum benefit to you at tax time, Helm will make sure that any needed tax planning will fit with your short and long-term financial strategy throughout the entire year. Our first consideration is to help you identify the sources and types of income you have, how these will change over time, and how the tax will evolve as you grow your net worth and cash flow. It's also important to incorporate your taxes into your overall financial plan as certain strategies affect the taxes you pay in different ways.
Helm can also help make tax time easier by ensuring that your accountant has all the paperwork he or she needs to file your taxes correctly and on time, while still leveraging any and all tax deductions you may be entitled to.
Helm considers your entire financial picture, both short and long-term to determine the best tax strategy.

pLANNING FOR PAYMENTS
For many Canadians, taxes are withheld and submitted by their employer. But for others, it isn’t quite that simple.
If you’re self-employed, you have to remit taxes periodically. Or if you’re retired, you may have investment income where there is no tax withheld, so you’ll need to pay it yourself. Helm can help map out how taxes are paid and ensure you’re setting aside enough income tax so you’re prepared for the payments you’ll need to make. Helm can also help you avoid surprises by alerting you to events that might trigger tax bills and helping you plan the tax payments in advance.
If you want to minimize the anxiety generally associated with tax time and avoid surprise bills and penalties, consider adding Helm to your tax team.
