Where do casual labour expenses get entered on a T2125 form? line 9060? line 8340? line 8360? She occasionally gets help from others, no goods involved, just services.

For example, she has her mother help out at times, I'm finding it difficult to determine the real difference between line 9060 and line 8340.  If  necessary, we could go the sub contracting route and have her mom write an invoice and put it on line 8360 correct?  The language is a little confusing 8340 and 8360 specify "goods" sold and manufactured, but she does not do this, simply services for decorating .


In form T2125, line 8340 will have entries when the business has goods that it is selling and it incurs wage costs in creating those goods that it sells (business manufactures and sells goods).  Otherwise, if the business only provides services, then payments made as salaries, etc. are claimed in line 9060.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
