Becoming a self-employed contract worker can be a confusing transition for former employees. This course provides the fundamentals about what it means to be self-employed and provides particular guidance on the type of tax deductions commonly claimed by self-employed commission salespersons.


Stats Canada reports that the number of self-employed workers in Canada is increasing. As far back as 2016, 8.2% of the labour force did some form of gig work. The trend has continued and, particularly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more workers are turning to self-employment to earn a living. For commission salespersons, the transition can be confusing as the rules for what expenses can be claimed are different from those applicable to an employee.
