What business problems are you trying to solve?

These are the conversations we have every day. Whether you’re a brand new business or a mature business that needs advice we can help position you for success through goal setting, strategic planning, benchmarking, financing and building a network of professional contacts.

Day-to-day financial questions

How do I file my personal and business taxes?

What is a budget, what is a cash flow?

How do I organize my financial information? Keep records? Should I use excel or an accounting program?

How do I pay myself?

Can RLB help me do all this?

It would be our pleasure to help; it’s our area of expertise. We’re here to help guide you no matter if you are a sole proprietor or an incorporated business.

Tax Problems

When do I register for HST?

It may be a little different for everyone. We can help you figure out if now is the right time and, if so, help you register and advise on filings.

I am being audited; what should I do?

As a client of RLB, we handle this for you.

Business Structure

Is it time for me to incorporate? How do I start?

The team at RLB can help, we’ll set up the “arrangement of the company” (there are many options) and will work with your lawyer (or help you find one) to set you up for future success.

Can I take a loan from my family? Can I lend money to my business?

You certainly can, but we need to make sure it is clearly documented and that everyone knows their expectations and obligations.

Knowing how to grow

Need access to bank financing? We don’t lend, but we can help you prepare the documentation you need to apply for business loans, and even introduce you to local bankers who may be able to help.

Have questions about your growing team?

How do I pay an employee?

Do I need an employment contract?

Do I need to offer a probation period, and is it okay to fire them within this period?

It’s time to connect with our HR Consulting team. They can answer all of your questions and help you navigate the Human Resources process.

Contact us for a complimentary consultation to learn more about how we can help you and your business succeed.
