Cell phone repair business tools expense

Hello everyone,
I'm starting my own cellphone repair business I just want to purchase tools and equipment I understand that the tax I would pay I can claim it back but how I can declare the transaction as business expense I mean into what category falls under?
From CRA and accounting point of view what should I declare?

Thank you

When you file your hst remittance, you need 1.total sales 2.hst collected and 3.hst paid.

For 3, it's total hst from expenses you had paid duration of the period you are reporting. Main things are inventory purchases like solder and ic parts. Reoccurring items like rent and utilities. Tools and equipment purchased would go as well and that total hst claiming amount would vary because of that from reporting period to period.

Definitely do not want to rain on your plans but I think you are at least a decade too late. Sorry.
