The Canada Revenue Agency Announces the Launch of Information Webinars for Small Businesses

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is pleased to announce the launch of Small Business Information Webinars as part of ongoing efforts to assist Canadians in understanding their tax responsibilities and how the CRA is available to help them.

The CRA already distributes educational material for businesses through many communication channels, such as the CRA Web site, publications, small business information seminars, mailings, and its electronic distribution list. The Small Business Information Webinars are a new interactive way for businesses to learn about their income tax and value-added tax responsibilities, and will also provide small enterprises a means to communicate with the CRA.

The Small Business Information Webinars have been established in addition to and in complement of the existing small business information seminars. Webinars allow the CRA to be more accessible, particularly to taxpayers that are either too far away to attend an information session, or that need information on specific topics.

The CRA is offering an additional suite of webinars focused on the HST for Ontario and British Columbia. For more information on these webinars, please see www.cra.gc.ca/harmonization.

The CRA is continuously creating more ways to assist small businesses in complying with their tax obligations.
