    Buying private daycare with 14 kids and more. Question for expense write-off/deductib

    There an daycare on sale with currently 14 kids and we would like to buy it. I live in Montreal, QC.

    I got some question regarding expense write-off and tax deduction.
    I was reading the Revenue Canada and also the Revenue canada.

    For the Revenue Canada, i only see Home daycare. not a commercial daycare with more then 5 kids. Does this apply to my daycare for expense I can deduct since it only mention Home Daycare. Mine is not in an home, but in an office building.

    Revenue Quebec for small business mention i can do some deduction expense:

    So i am trying to find out exactly what expense i can deduct/write off.

    Also, they provide me with their financial result. In the financial result, there is no row for expense deduction/write-off, like telephone, electricity, etc..

    I presume for a financial result, you normally put your revenue, all expense and that it.

    CRA's home day care guide allows totally different write offs and tax deductions than it would for a commercial, licensed, day care center. Everything is different.

    You'll need to have proper business records/accounts which are connected to your business name which is registered in your province and has a BIN # - Business identification number. Personally, I'd be interviewing/finding an accountant/book-keeper and asking them. Odd are you'll need their services anyway.

    That's all the help I can offer. This forum is home based day care so none of us will have commerical day care centers. Good luck.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
