Daycare in your home

If you run a daycare business in your home, you may be able to deduct business expenses from the income you report on your income tax return.

The CRA provides a checklist that communicates some of the key tax topics that should be taken into consideration by self-employed individuals and small business owners. 

If you are thinking of setting up a daycare business, you should also know about municipal, provincial, territorial, and federal laws and regulations that could affect you. You can get some of the information you should know from municipal offices, provincial or territorial ministries, as well as applicable Government of Canada departments and agencies. Also, local chambers of commerce or boards of trade will often offer help to new businesses.
