Capital cost items:

These are items such as furniture and computers purchased to run your business; only a percentage of captial cost allowance is used each year as an expense to your company.

Vehicle Expenses:

If you are a limited or incorporated company and you drive your personal vehicle for business purposes, keep a log of all kilometers driven for business and a calculation can be done monthly or yearly to recapture the amount as an expense.  Currently the Government allows .53 cents for the first 5000 kilometers and .47 cents for every kilometer after that; however, if you use your vehicle solely for business purposes (you have another vehicle for personal use), you are able to write the entire vehicle off.
