What does Lightspeed Do?

Lightspeed is a cloud-based point-of-sale software that offers a number of unique features for e-commerce and physical stores in Canada, the United States, and beyond.

Lightspeed offers a number of robust solutions, including retail store management, e-commerce integration, managing online and in-store inventory, purchase order management, payment processing, cash drawer control, customer analysis, and more. It also easily integrates with in-store POS hardware and a wide range of bookkeeping and accounting software programs, including QuickBooks, Xero, Shogo, and more.

Lightspeed also offers its own Lightspeed Accounting software, that acts as the link between Lightspeed POS retail software and your preferred accounting software of choice.

Clients using Lightspeed for their business typically have multiple store branches, complex inventory, or a large e-commerce store. This means that the bookkeeping andd accounting information collected by Lightspeed is extremely detailed and varied. To make the most use of all this information, it is best to work with a qualified Lightspeed accountant who can manage your Lightspeed finances.

Accounting and Tax Obligations for Lightspeed Users

If you use Lightspeed for your business operations, you are able to sync various brick-and-mortar stores with your e-commerce shop. This means you could be integrating and consolidating stores in different provinces, and selling to customers across the country - meaning different tax rates and responsibilities.

If you are operating a business from outside Canada and selling to Canadian customers, you also have to adhere to this provincial and federal tax rates. You are required by law to charge the appropriate taxes, collect it from the customer, and then remit it to the government.

When you use Lightspeed accounting and bookkeeping, you have all your financial information in one place. You are responsible for setting up the correct tax rates for customers in different provinces and jurisdictions. For example, some provinces charge federal and provincial tax in one rate known as HST. This means one tax filing return covers multiple jurisdictions. However, other provinces and territories charge provincial sales tax and/or federal sales tax separately, meaning you need to file multiple returns if you sell to customers in these jurisdictions.

As your business expands and you add more online shops and brick-and-mortar stores to your enterprise, you will end up registering for multiple tax numbers, filing various tax returns, and paying multiple tax agencies.

Furthermore, the frequency at which you have to file your sales taxes for your businesses can differ. If your sales are less than 1.5 million CAD per year, you are only required to file once per year for the federal return. However, this does not cover all provinces and if you have over 1.5 million CAD in sales, you are required to file more often.

Deadlines to file sales tax charges in Canada differ from due dates in the United States or other countries. The potential due dates are monthly, quarterly, annually for December 31st year-end, and annually for a custom year end. Your HST payment date is determined by which of these filing periods you follow.

If you miss a tax filing period, are late on a tax charge due date, or fail to register for tax charging at all, you can incur hefty penalties from provincial governments and federal entities.

With all the potential that Lightspeed provides for business, it can be difficult to keep track of these varying tax rates and responsibilities. This is why Accountor CPA is proud to offer Lightspeed tax accounting services to keep your businesses compliant with Canadian tax law.

Let us handle your tax preparation and filing for your Lightspeed-operated businesses and simplify your enterprise.
