It’s Small Business Week! Intuit Canada is taking this time to recognize the most important driver in Canada’s economy: you, the small business owner. You represent 98% of all businesses in Canada. You employ 5.1 million Canadians. You’ve created 600, 000 jobs over the last decade. And most of you start out with less than $5,000 and a dream. Here’s a few of the things we’re doing to recognize you and help you out:
- We’re giving away $5,000 to one lucky small business. To enter, sign up for a free trial of QuickBooks Online during the month of October. It’s our new, easy-to-use accounting tool that can help you manage your business anywhere, anytime.
