Wed Jan 19 noon to 1pm Designing, Verifying and Testing your Mnimal Viable Product: The MVP concept was popularized by Eric Ries in his book ‘The Lean Startup’. His definition of MVP is “The minimum viable product is that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort.” The idea of viability differs from person to person just as it differs from a product to product. In a more general sense, a product is viable if it successfully fulfills a need in the market. Having a test plan for your MVP is important.

Wed Jan 26 10:30 to 11:30am Shareholder Loans and Their Tax Implications for Incorporated Businesses.

In this session we will discuss:

  • What constitutes the shareholder loan account within your corporation.
  • The basic rules imposed by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) when an owner-manager borrows funds from the corporation.
  • Some exceptions available to allow shareholders to take loans for a longer period of time.
  • Clearing the shareholder loans by either paying a salary or declaring a dividend and its advantages and disadvantages.
  • Understanding the corporate and personal tax effects of paying dividends versus salaries. Register FREE @ www.awebusiness.com
