A New Ruling Could Mean Tax Changes for Canadian Businesses

Canadian Businesses can no longer assume they are exempt from US sales tax laws.

The recent ruling in the case called South Dakota v. Wayfair case allows states to make vendor collection and remittance of sales tax for out-of-state sellers, like internet based sales companies mandatory.

The US Supreme Court has overturned previous decisions regarding the taxation of purchases made from businesses physically located outside the State.


The Forgotten Question of Data Backups

The move toward cloud-based applications like Microsoft Office 365 enables users to access their information anytime, anywhere. This has lead to a common misconception that data is backed up because it's stored in the cloud.

The same misconception of Office 365 backups is a commonly held misconception about the integrity of entire databases and their backups.


Harvest Ventures offers technical services to maintain the integrity of your companies database in the form of ERP software health checks.
