  1. Hi. We own & operate a small ladies clothing shop. Last season we over purchased inventory. If we donate $30000.Cnd to a womans shelter can we use the entire donation in this tax year? Please note that our company is incorperated.
    Thank you.

  2. Hi Kent,

    I’m not sure about Canadian law, but US Law offers a deduction for charitable giving but I believe there is a limit. Also, many US businesses simply take a loss and that helps lower their tax bill. Best advised to get an hour or so of advice from a CPA or Tax Attorney.
