Anyone else run into kids working/Building on gear jammer?

I've come across some kid "working" on lower part of gear jammer. couple days ago. He had the entrance blocked off(where it splits to upper cut). He was making berm with a tiny shovel and a hammer.. I've come across him and couple of his buddies before down gear jammer couple of times. First time I ran into these kids last month just before trail splits into lower gearjammer and uppercut. They yelled, "STOP! Trail work being done"

As far as I know, he doesn't have permit to build, he's moved from the island. He was riding Tld edition demo 8 and one of his buddy(girl) was riding aurum with dorado

came down there last night and seen the signs up, something along the lines of we're putting in all this hard work on our own time, please don't remove it, we're helping improve the trails and finished off with CHILLAXXX!!!!

Why pre-sale? Have you considered all the down sides/liabilities to purchasing a pre sale unit?

Why, we like new, we're not looking to move for a year or two so puts pre sale in the picture, we may consider an existing building if we can't find a pre sale we're happy with. Happy to be schooled if there is a very good reason for not going that route.

look up my buddy franco diligenti . . .

thanks.

Check out Chris Brown, he does a good amount of pre-construction sales. He's a good guy and a rider.

NSMB Forum test: Ryders Shore goggle

I always like wearing goggles but hate them steaming up, I had the shore goggle a while back and it steamed up just as much as pretty much any other. Best solution I've found which actually works is to buy any single lens google, take a pretty decent hole punch and punch a few holes along the top of the lens, it works!

Need new internet provider

My LTE on iPhone is twice as fast as my Shaw high speed at download (14 v 28Mbps) and upload is 0.46 v 9Mbps. Whenever I upload to say Vimeo I plug in my iPhone and use that. How the hell can the cable companies "high speed" not be faster than a wireless signal?

Go Pro old vs new

The camera looks great. The slow-mo ability in your videos surprised me. I'm starting to consider buying one.
Also, I feel as though I saw you and your crew on Seymour Saturday.

The slow mo does become quite addictive, I can't wait to try it in some decent light as the videos I have taken so far are quite grainy, You might have seen us, we did a neds lap and a pingu pangor, that was a super wet day!

the only problem with that review is its the Hero 3 silver v the Hero 2, essentially the same cameras. If you want some hero 3 black videos on the shore take a look here https://vimeo.com/user8247572/videos i've yet to get a decent day for it but you'll get an idea.

Anyone have a Regular Job plus Sideline?

Employment income from all sources is combined. Deductions are made against combined income.

Make sure your deductions are reasonable. Having to deal with an audit is a major pain.

The employment you earn from a paycheck with income tax, CPP etc deducted is called "Employment Income" by CRA. "Self-employment" income is whatever you earn form your business activity and is filled out on a separate form that is part of the basic CRA tax package. So you would typically declare it as "Business Income" in the "Self-Employment Income" sheet (there are also separate categories of Self-Employment Income for professionals (lawyers, doctors, dentists etc), fishermen and farmers).

On this separate form in the tax package you declare your business income and business expenses. You can deduct expenses for a business from your Business Income, but NOT Employment Income. Business/Self-employed Income is not Employment Income. You are taxed on the net combined Employment and Business Incomes, but you can only deduct Business Expenses from Business Income. If you have more expenses than you earn from your business (ie you run a business at a loss) you cannot deduct the loss from your Employment Income. You can forward the loss to next year and claim it against your next year's self-employment income (assuming you make a profit - CRA may get pissed if you claim loss after loss after loss and never make a profit from your Business Income - I think you can forward losses 2 or 3 years). Anyway, as someone suggested, if it does get complicated, hire an accountant for at the first year.

You guys seem to contradict each other a bit here, is one of you wrong or does it depend how you run things, If say I do a little bit of work in my spare time without setting up a formal business I can report some additional income and related costs, but If I form a company to do the little bit of work they become separate entities…

Anyone have a Regular Job plus Sideline?

You can't claim business losses from your other income, but you can apply a loss in your business in one year to a profit in a future year of the same busines, therefore reducing your taxable income. So file a tax claim even if you made no money. But if you make no money year after year, CRA will probably be suspicious. Your business should exist for the ultimate goal of making a profit.

You should get a book or read all the CRA literature regarding small businesses in Canada. Welcome to the world of self-employment.

Just starting to read through that but it is not obvious how it works if you have a regular income and a separate smaller income, are they declared separately on different returns? from what you say, sounds like you can't write expenses for the sideline off against regular income. Sounds like an accountant might be the way to go at first anyway.

Wondering what the requirements are in relation to setting up, informing the government, tax deductions, etc. Anyone care to say how their setup works?

The sideline is not expected to make much money, will be more of a hobby/addition to the resume, but has the potential to make a little bit of money. It would be a partnership with my wife, we both have regular professional jobs with tax taken out of our pay cheques. There may be a very small amount of investment paid out of our own pocket but not much and it would be home based. I'm thinking at a minimum even without making any money we may be able to get some tax back from our regular income for part of the rent, etc.

The official 2012 Olympic thread!

What happened to the women's MTB coverage? There was nothing this morn.

It was on just now on nbc but they stopped it halfway through for some girl with a hula hoop! The rest later apparently!
