First time IT contractor
1. Do we need an accountant ? What does an accountant do for us ? How much he/she would charge ? Where to find one ? How about looking on craigslist ? How do we know whether one is good ? We are Vancouver-based. If you can recommend someone, please PM me.
2. Do we need to open a business bank account ? a credit card ? or can we just use our personal credit card for business expenses ?
3. When you tell a potential client your rate, should the rate include GST ? My husband got surprised when he first saw the contract where it states that the contractor is responsible for all the taxes including GST. Is that normal ?
