A trend we are seeing on the rise is self-employment as the gig economy takes off. But what does it mean to be a contractor versus an employee? It may seem attractive to hire a contractor over an employee because then you do not have to worry about remitting payroll deductions to CRA and you do not have the same commitment to an employee contract, which usually appeals to small businesses and startups.
Still not sure? You can ask CRA for a ruling via your CRA account or come talk to us. We would love to help!
