Small Business Employee Benefits and Pension Plans
With more than 2 000 000 small businesses across Canada and close to 140 000 new operations starting up each year there’s nothing small about small business today. Small business owners are unique, they’re innovative and enterprising individuals who walk a tight rope to balance the financial well being of their businesses with personal success
If you own a small business, you already know that your business finances impact your personal finances. In fact, according to a survey conducted for Manulife Financial in January 2009, small business owners’ most important financial needs are a blend of both business and personal needs.
Mixing personal and business finances
For most small business owners, taking care of business means getting personal. They need to balance the business side of the ledger with personal needs. On the business side, small business owners are concerned with sales, profits and cash flow. They believe that attracting and retaining good employees is important. In fact, many have implemented flexible work schedules to retain top talent.
