Best Advertising Methods To Attract People To Your Events Post COVID-19 by Duluth Businessman Ismail Sirdah

Jan 16, 2021

Hosting events has been challenging against the backdrop of COVID-19 infections and economic lockdowns.Duluth Businessman Ismail Sirdah has turned a corner with many of his clients and colleagues when organizing virtual events in 2020. COVID-19 has changed the landscape of event marketing. Everything is digitally enhanced in 2021.As more people receive the COVID-19 vaccine, how can organizers increase participation while putting health concerns at ease? Mr. Sirdah provides six tips.DULUTH, Ga. - Jan. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- 1.     Promote basic pandemic-proof habitsAs in-person events resume, planners are advertising by social media to take extra measures to inform participants of social "dos and don'ts." For example, handshaking is not as ubiquitous as it used to be. Many will want to refrain from physical contact of any kind. Organizers can encourage this.Assuring participants that organizers are taking these pandemic-proof habits seriously will greatly relieve anxiety for conscientious attendees, says Ismail Sirdah.2.     Limit in-person attendance and Increase virtual participationWith the many digital tools available to help event planners launch a hybrid model, it is in everyone's best interest that more people utilize virtual attendance. Not only does this lower event costs, but it keeps groups small and reduces the risk of another outbreak.3.     Utilize outdoors for mixers and mealsIsmail Sirdah note that spacious outdoor gatherings are safer than indoors. When the conference is not in session, planners can organize mixers and meals outside. This simple adjustment can reduce the risk of sickness or another pandemic.4.     Focus on post-event activitiesIt's critical to remember that a marketing event is most successful when participants continue collaborating after the event, says Ismail Sirdah. The more post-event activities planners can promote, the more valuable the event will be.5.     Use menus instead of buffetsPlanning meal times carefully can greatly reduce health concerns and increase participation. For example, buffets force everyone to touch the same utensils. Even with sneeze guards, mouth and nasal droplets can infect food on the buffet line.Instead, planners can hand out menus and cater orders to the event. This ensures that only sanitized food prep staff handle the meals says Ismail Sirdah6.     Don't shame mask wearingEven after COVID-19, many will prefer to wear masks at in-person events, shares Ismail Sirdah. Planners and hosts can encourage this, especially for those that are prone to sickness at certain times of the year. When promoting the event, adding a positive word about mask wearing can encourage nervous attendees that leaders are taking health concerns seriously.ContactIsmail Sirdah Marketing & Events***@gmail.comPhotos: (Click photo to enlarge) Read Full Story - Best Advertising Methods To Attract People To Your Events Post COVID-19 by Duluth Businessman Ismail Sirdah | More news from this sourcePress release distribution by PRLog

The home expense deduction under Canadian law

Jan 16, 2021

Toronto, Jan 16, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - 1040 Abroad also offers the preparation of Canadian tax returns and this post addresses the deductibility of business expenses when preparing a Canadian tax return on form T1. Feel free to contact us with any Canadian tax questions.   Question:  I worked from home due to COVID.  Can I write off my home expenses on my taxes? Answer: As with most tax-related questions, the answer is both yes and no. Under normal circumstances, for home office expenses to be deductible, your working from home should have been a condition in your employment contract.  COVID forced many to work from home in 2020, causing CRA to not only reconsider some of their rules in 2020 but to also simplify the process to make home office administration easier.  Here are some examples of home office expenses that are now deductible: Rent paid to live in your home Minor maintenance costs and cleaning supplies Monthly internet charges (new in 2020. Excludes internet activation costs) Utilities, hydro, water, electricity Office supplies not reimbursed by your employer Cell phone minutes Employees earning a commission may also deduct the following Property tax Home insurance Lease of a cell phone, computer, laptop, etc. that can be reasonably connected to earning commissions The following are not deductible: Mortgage interest or principal payments Furniture Large repairs or maintenance (i.e. installing new floors, replacing windows, etc.) Wall decoration There are two options to claiming these expenses on your tax return:   Simplified Method - this method is for those who do have not kept their receipts or wish to keep the home office expense calculation simple. CRA permits a $2 per day deduction up to a maximum of $400.  You will need a signed T2200S from your employer to deduct these expenses.  While you are not required to include the T2200S with your taxes, you must keep it in case CRA asks to see it. Detailed Method -- If you want to claim the employment portion of the actual amounts you paid, use the Detailed Method to determine the prorated amount of your claimable home expenses. You will need to split the expenses between your employment use and personal use of your home. You will need the signed T2200S your employer to use this method.  In addition, you will need to file the T777S Statement of Employment Expenses for Working at Home Due to COVID-19 with your tax return.  To qualify to use this method, your employer would have asked you to work from home due to COVID, and the space you use as your office is used more than 50% of the time for work, and you worked from home for at least four weeks.   Calculating Business Use of Home Expenses: You rent a 1000 square foot apartment, and you have a second bedroom that you use as your office, exclusively for work.  Your home office is 100 square feet.  Since your office represents 10% (100/1000 square feet) of your home, you would be able to deduct 10% of the value of all your home expenses.
