Hey guys, I'm a new forex trader in Ontario Canada. Over here your gains are treated as income and are taxed as self-employment income. Are there any ways to reduce taxes other than writing off business expenses? Also, are you able to write off things like food expenses? Thanks a lot. EDIT: I thought this didn't have to be mentioned, but I'm looking for LEGAL ways to reduce taxes, lol.
I've been practicing on a demo account for quite a while now and was ready to bite the bullet and open a real account and start trading. To my surprise Alberta regulations with the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) only allow accredited investors to trade with brokers regulated in Canada. And to become an accredited investor one would need an income of over 200k a year, or assets exceeding $5 million. As this is far out of reach for the majority of individuals including myself, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how I could start trading without having to move provinces. Thank you.

Need Help - Do Businesses who generate Forex income have to pay GST/HST to the CRA (Canada)
Hey guys, I'm a total noobie here and can't seem to find the answer to this question anywhere. In Canada, if you incorporate yourself and run your trades through your business and earn business income, do you also have to pay GST/HST to the CRA as another business would? I am asking this question because for my current job, I am incorporated (different field) and charge GST/HST, which then goes to the CRA. However, seeing as this is Forex, would it be the same? It's not like you can collect GST/HST from the market....lol Essentially I'm trying to see what is the best option to save my profits going forward. This scenario is based on generating 500K/year in profit via trading:
Claim Capital Gains - 50% of the profit will be taxed at your marginal rate (Until how long though? At what point will the CRA consider it business income instead?)
Sole Proprietor - Income is taxed at the personal income tax rate and you can also claim expenses, in addition you do not pay GST/HST
Incorporated Business - Income is taxed at the corporate tax rate, you can claim expenses and pay yourself dividends (even lower tax rate), BUT - Do you have to pay GST/HST as well?
Sorry for the stupid question, the answer is probably no, but I want to be sure. If I don't have to pay GST/HST then I think registering as a business is a no-brainer. In fact, you can save more money than purely capital gains up to a certain point. Not to mention all the tax-hacks you can have like using the business' money to buy yourself a home completely tax-free in Canada, if you know how to do it. Essentially I'm seeing the best way to pay myself 100K/year while saving the other 400K, to then take it out tax-free on a future home. But yeah, do businesses have to pay GST/HST? Thanks everyone.
