Taxes

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. Many Canadians carry a certain amount of debt as part of their overall financial picture. But with proper financial planning, you’ll be able to determine how much money you’ll need for monthly expenditures, future savings, and be able to manage debt effectively. Part of your financial planning should include paying taxes - which are financial contributions required yearly by the government. The amount of tax that a person must pay varies based on the type of tax (income, property, etc.) Financial experts have differing views on how much money you should keep in savings, how and where to invest your money, and how best to manage your monthly and yearly costs. Do you have questions about your current financial tax requirements? Would you like guidance or information from a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one?

Taxation

A Very Short Introduction

Tax revenues pay for many public services, including roads, health care, and education. However, it has become a contentious political issue of public debate. In this volume, Stephen Smith explains the role that taxes play in a modern economy and describes some of the main taxes used by most developed and developing countries. It considers the key issues: the question of where the burden of taxation really lies, how taxation affects the economy, and the effects of tax evasion and tax avoidance.

Making Pollution Prevention Pay

Fiscal measures are being used increasingly by governments to secure environmental policy objectives. This book examines how green taxes have worked in practice. The author uses his 20 years of environmental policy experience to test the effectiveness of economic instruments. Through a comparative study of the water policies of Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands, he shows how, in contrast to administrative regulation, green taxes have made pollution prevention pay and promoted the ecological modernization of industry.

Environmental Taxes Handbook

Some aspect or other of the negative impact of human activities upon the environment hits the headlines on an almost daily basis. While differences remain between the major industrialised nations over the steps which should be taken to reduce that impact, many European countries, including the UK, have introduced rules to their tax systems to penalise those activities likely to cause most environmental damage, and have introduced tax incentives to reduce detrimental environmental impact. Businesses which are involved in any activity identified by the law as attracting an environmental tax penalty will need to know what their liabilities and obligations are. Equally, businesses eligible for environmental tax incentives will want to be in a position to claim their full entitlement to allowances. This book covers the UK “penalty” taxes, namely landfill tax, climate change levy and the aggregates levy, as well as the topical issue of the EU emissions trading scheme and the system which allows companies a tax deduction for the costs of cleaning up contaminated land. It also deals with the tax incentives, such as special benefit rules for cars with low CO2 emissions and tax incentives to encourage staff to cycle to work. The book provides a comprehensive guide to the current range of UK environmental taxes and incentives aimed at businesses (and their advisers) potentially affected by them.
