“Grab a prop”.  And so we did. The result were three hilarious photos jam-packed with Christmassy goodness. Homeroom Christmas party brought us to the magical Vancouver Christmas Market where we enjoyed mulled wine, pretzels and carousel rides. The team continued the fun at  Chambar with laughs and toasts! Photo courtesy of West Coast Photo Booth

 

With Christmas on the brain, a lot of our clients are asking about our hours of operation over the holidays.

While we will remain in full hustle mode (working from 8AM to 5PM, Monday to Friday) for most of the days like cool little bookkeeping elves, we will take some time off to guzzle down jugs of eggnog and insert funny family photos into lively Jib Jab videos.

So if you’re yearning to drop off your bookkeeping before the celebrations commence, please keep in mind the following changes in our hours:

  • Friday, December 23: We close the doors early at 3PM
  • Monday, December 26: CLOSED
  • Tuesday, December 27: CLOSED
  • Monday, January 2: CLOSED

We hope your holidays are merry and bright, and you welcome 2017 awesome-style, wherever you are!

Contact us here or call us at 604-739-9536 if you have any questions about your bookkeeping and ridding yourself of the last bit of 2016!christmasemojis

Act now and save big on your taxes!

show-me-the-money-meme-830x400’Tis the season for gingerbread lattes, Christmas markets, chocolates galore, and taxes! Wait a second…but yes! By spending a couple of hours this month on your taxes, there are a few things you can do to maximize your savings and make your life easier come February 2016.

You can start by organizing eligible tax credits—charitable donations, kids’ spots and arts payments, transit passes, education and healthcare expanses. By putting any year-end bonuses into your RRSP before the February 29 deadline, you can avoid the tax.

Other year-end tax-saving tips:

  • Make charitable donations
  • Contribute to an RESP
  • Tax-loss selling
  • Installment payments
  • Kids’ expenses

So as you spread the holiday cheer this season, make sure you’re giving yourself a tax break as well!

On behalf of the Homeroom team, we wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!!
