1.What is the Hiring Credit for Small Business (HCSB)?
The HCSB is a one-time credit of up to $1,000 based on the increase in an employer’s employment insurance (EI) premiums paid for 2012 over those paid for 2011 by Payroll Accountant in Woodbridge ON. You don’t need to apply for this credit, it is automatically credit to you, if you qualify for this benefit by your Payroll Accountant in Woodbridge.
2. Who is eligible for the HCSB and how will it be calculated?
A small business at Woodbridge On, whose total employer’s EI premiums paid for 2011 was $10,000 or less and whose total premiums increased in 2012 is eligible for a credit. The credit is calculated as the difference between these two amounts up to a maximum of $1,000. The CRA will automatically calculate the credit when an eligible employer’s 2012 T4 information return is filed by your Payroll Accountant at Woodbridge ON.
