As a contributor for Canadian magazine The Bottom Line, Taxation Partner Luc Lacombe reveals ways in which the Quebec Government could recover some revenue. In his opinion, the introduction of a home renovation tax credit is one solution. “If the government introduced a 20 per cent tax credit, as it did in the past, it would ensure that the contractor who is doing the work is declaring his revenues, and therefore recoup even more monies from them in the form of income taxes,” says Luc Lacombe. Check out the full article (page 9 and 11 of the magazine).

ACET (Accélérateur de création d’entreprises technologiques), together with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, announced the launch of a new web platform to support entrepreneurship, available at www.JeSuisEntrepreneur.ca.

The application, which is available in its entirety online, enables entrepreneurs to create a profile and manage their business project. Easy-to-use and user-friendly, the application was designed to meet the needs of all entrepreneurs, no matter their age, activity sector, education or the size of their business.

In practice, users will find the tool handy when it comes time to search for information on economic development organizations in their region, and for following up on what needs to be done during the start-up and growth stages, completing a business plan or exchanging ideas with other entrepreneurs or investors.

“At Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, we are committed to supporting economic development and entrepreneurial initiatives, which is why it only seemed natural to work with ACET to launch the tool,” stated Guy Fauteux, Vice-President of the Eastern Townships region. “Whether through collaborations like this one or initiatives like Programme Envol, we have a role to play on the Eastern Township’s entrepreneurial stage, among others, and we are fully committed to doing so,” concluded Guy.

ACET’s Mission
Since its creation in 2011, ACET has been devoted to selecting, training and supporting start-up technology-based companies, creating high quality jobs and transforming projects into businesses which will support a knowledge-based economy.

In an interview with François Gagnon, host of the PME en action program on the Argent network, Pierre Fortin, Management Consulting Partner, provided insight into strategic planning.

He explained that strategic planning benefits both SMEs and large entities. It’s not, as many mistakenly believe, simply a huge report gathering dust on the shelf, it’s a way for businesses of all sizes to develop a tailored, simple, easy-to-apply game-plan.

Pierre added that entrepreneurs only spend one hour per week on their corporate strategy. Yet, taking a step back to look at the company’s vision, its objectives and the values it wants to transmit to staff and clients makes it possible to set up a well-defined plan that will contribute to increasing the bottom line as well as mobilizing employees and getting their buy-in to attain the company’s objectives.

The first step in strategic planning must include an in-depth review that encompasses analyzing the competition and the company’s distinctive features. This is then followed by development of the actual plan and its implementation.
