Canadian small business lagging in online presence: Internet Factbook Three-quarters of Canadians research purchases online, but only 41 per cent of small businesses have an online presence

C

anadian small businesses, only 41.1 per cent of which have a website, may be missing lucrative opportunities as Canadians come to rely on the Internet to help them make buying decisions, according to the 2014 Factbook from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (www.CIRA.ca), the organization that manages the .CA domain. CIRA’s annual Factbook is a collection of data and information that provides an overview of the health of the global domain name industry, the Canadian Internet, and .CA’s place in it. It compiles findings from CIRA’s own primary research, carried out with the assistance of the Strategic Counsel and ZookNIC Internet Intelligence, with publicly available data from Statistics Canada, Ipsos Reid, ComScore, Websense, TNS Digital Life and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Among this year’s findings about Canadians’ online retail habits:

›› Two out of every three dollars Canadians spend online go south of the border, and we lag the U.S. and the U.K. in terms of the percentage of our retail economy that is online (three per cent, versus seven and 23 per cent, respectively). Other interesting highlights of the Factbook include:

›› Only 62 per cent of Canadians in the lowest income quartile have Internet access, compared with 95 per cent of Canadians in the highest income quartile.

›› The average Canadian visited 3,731 web pages per month last year, the highest in the world. We also ranked a close second behind the U.S. for the average number of hours spent online per user.

›› Canadians continue to be heavy consumers of online video, ranking second in the world behind the U.K., at 24.8 hours per month.

›› Almost 24 million Canadians, or 69 per cent of us, visited at least one social networking site last year.

›› The percentage of smartphone users who use their device to watch video or television increased by 21 percentage points last year, to 37 per cent.

“The Factbook provides a unique and important portrait of how the Internet is changing the way Canadians work and important,” or “very important” for Canadians to have .CA. communicate, with each other and the world,” said Byron Holland, CEO of CIRA.“We continue to find that Canadians ›› Half of Canadians who expressed a preference also said are unique in terms of why and how we use the Internet, they prefer .CA over .COM for business use, and for the values we uphold online, and the pride we take in online activities that require the disclosure of personal having .CA as our unique identifier.” information such as shopping or banking.

›› 87 per cent of Internet users consider it “somewhat

›› 74 per cent of Canadians reported that they search online, and compare goods and services, before committing to a purchase.

›› Only 45.5 per cent of Canadian businesses are online. This divide is particularly evident among small businesses, with only 41.1 per cent having a website, versus 91.8 per cent of large enterprises.

These and other interesting findings from the 2014 Factbook, are available at http://cira.ca/factbook/2014/index.html.

to sell, or not to sell? that is the question. Dino Nicosia, Broker Of Record, President | Investpro Realty and Appraisal Ltd., Brokerage

C: 905.870.5852 | F: 905.631.6505 Visit our website: www.investprorealty.com Follow me on: http://twitter.com/#!/DinoNicosia

Due to the current hot Real Estate market (where prices have reached new highs), I am often asked the question “is this a good time to sell?” My answer is a simple yes… it is the best time to sell! There are many positives in selling at this time. • Are you close to retirement? Hamilton

What a great time to sell! You could take back a mortgage from a qualified Buyer and receive a good rate of return on your money while you enjoy your leisure time. There are also income tax benefits to taking back a mortgage. Discuss this with your accountant.

• W hy not sell your small rental properties and purchase a larger property? There are many investors ready and willing to invest in smaller rental properties. Take advantage of this high demand. Sell your small properties and expand your Real Estate portfolio by acquiring larger investments that are often easier and much less work to manage.

• Hot Market/Hot Price! Unless you plan to hold for long term, the most significant reason to sell now is that the selling prices are at their highest levels on record. Cap Rates have fallen to all time lows translating to very little return on an investment property. If there is a downward adjustment in property values, you may not get the same price 3-5 years from now as you would obtain today. History has proven over and over, that increasing prices at this rate will not last! It cannot continue at this pace and an adjustment may be on the horizon. Interest rates are expected to rise soon and this could translate to declining values and lesser demand. Any small increase in interest rates will tremendously affect cash flow. Consider that just a 1% rise in interest rates on a $1,000,000.00 mortgage will increase the payments by approximately $1,000.00 per month.

• Political changes. The Provincial government could possibly cool the rental investment market by introducing new laws or legislation. Any negative changes to the Residential Tenancies Act or the Mortgage Act can dramatically affect investor confidence which may result in declining values.

However, before you decide to sell, there are some factors that will have to be taken into consideration. As an example there will be income tax implications and in some cases, capital depreciation that must be recaptured. Discuss these issues with your accountant to determine how the sale will affect you. To summarize, I believe that if you are planning to sell in the near future, you should consider taking advantage of the current hot market today! For a discrete consultation or free market value assessment of your property, contact me any time. 8171452_1314

How to buy an investment condo By Wayne Karl

A

re you wondering how to buy an investment condo and not sure where to begin? Look for markets with a solid local economy, stable employment conditions and minimal new apartment construction, as they all combine to produce a tight rental environment.

If you can generate positive cash flow, the benefits are three-fold:

Smaller cities also make great target markets to buy an investment condo. The key things to look for are a solid local economy, stable employment conditions and minimal new apartment construction. These combine to produce a tight rental environment, which is what you want.

›› The vacancy rate is low and ideally tightening further

As an investor-landlord, you’ll need to learn about vacancy rates. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) summarizes these, along with average rents, in twice-annual rental market reports. An increasing rate means rental supply is growing, and renters have more units from which to choose. For landlords, this means more competition. Therefore, you may have trouble renting a property or increasing the rent. Declining vacancy rates mean supply is tightening and your property may be in higher demand. This could lead to you being able to charge more rent. A vacancy rate between two and three per cent is considered a balanced market, meaning supply is appropriate for demand. Anything below that is ideal. Investment strategy: Acquiring and operating an investment condo is very different than buying a primary residence. Your strategy should be to buy, hold and rent to generate income over and above your mortgage costs, while building equity over time. Rule number one for new investors, experts agree, is to take a long-term view – five to seven years – while generating positive cash flow. “There is nothing more challenging than buying an investment that does not cash flow,” says Mike Cunning, an investor based in Vancouver. Achieving positive cash flow means renting out your investment condo for more than your monthly mortgage payment and other costs. Once you include condo fees, taxes, insurance, property management fees, maintenance and advertising, the financial picture can look much different.

›› You pocket the monthly surplus ›› You build equity over the long term while someone else pays down your mortgage

›› And eventually, when you sell, you gain from any value appreciation in the property “Be in it for the long run,” says Rasna Arora, an Ottawa area investor.“Not to flip and speculate but to invest, for at least five years.” Buyers of investment condos are required to have a minimum 20-per-cent down payment. But a larger down payment also means you have to borrow less and your monthly payments will be lower. Vacancy rates: As an investor, you’re looking to select areas where:

›› The economic fundamentals are strong ›› The area is desirable for renters and the building type is suitable for the local tenant profile

›› Tenants in the area will pay what you have to charge for rent ChoosIng an InVestment Condo When choosing a neighbourhood and a property, it’s important to conduct your research and due diligence. Look for areas with strong economic fundamentals: job growth, population influx, average income growth and increasing (but still reasonable) property purchase prices. Other influences in value appreciation are proximity to mass transit, shopping, schools and other amenities. Ultimately, you want a property that appeals to potential owners, not just renters, because you want to be able to sell it one day, taking advantage of the increase in value. Setting the rent: How to set the “right” rent – high enough to generate positive cash flow, but not so high you price yourself out of the market for the area? First, find out what comparable units in the area rent for by checking sources where landlords advertise. You can also check provincial rent registry databases, along with CMHC’s rental market reports. The rent must be market-appropriate. Don’t think you can rent a two-bedroom condo for $1,500 a month, when similar units in your building rent for $1,000. In larger cities, downtown properties might be your first choice as a location for an investment condo, since the location will appeal to renters. But it’s also where average prices are higher and therefore less affordable. That makes achieving positive cash flow more difficult, because you might not be able to rent out your unit for what you need to cover your mortgage and expenses. and one final, but important reminder: “Remember that your tenants are your partners – they are the ones taking care of your investment and paying for it while you reap the rewards of appreciation and positive cash flow over time,”says Arora. “Treat them well, but don’t let them walk over you.”

Is your small busIness vulnerable to fraud?

O

rganizations of all sizes are susceptible to fraud and scams, but it’s the small and medium businesses that are the most vulnerable. According to Canadian accounting associations, SMBs represent the most important employment sector in the country, constituting 99.7 per cent of all business establishments and two thirds of the private workforce, making them a prime target. Their limited ability to allocate resources to prevention and detection means that fraudulent activity can usually go unnoticed until a high price has already been paid. “Another factor that makes small businesses susceptible to fraud is the limited overall knowledge that they have on the subject” notes François Ramsay, Senior Vice-President, Corporate Affairs and General Counsel for Yellow Pages Group.“ The majority of SMBs aren’t aware of the different

ways they could become victims of internal and external fraud, which makes it difficult for them to identify the chinks in their armour and to ensure prevention, detection, and appropriate response measures.” To help increase awareness, Ramsay identifies some of the most common and other not-so-obvious types of fraud that exploit small businesses. Employee Fraud: Unfortunately, studies have shown that even trusted employees, who don’t fit the stereotypical profile of a thief, can engage in fraud-related conduct. If they have easy access to funds in a company that lacks appropriate control systems in the accounting and inventory departments, employees may give in to the temptation to take company resources when faced with personal financial stress and the right opportunity. Impersonators: Some scammers send pretend invoices or try to pass themselves off as legitimate businesses that you usually deal with. SMBs may receive bills for print and online listings or advertisement which they did not order or authorize. Other order forms or invoices that seem to come from well-known supplierscould actually be from fraudsters who have made very

Is your small busIness cyber-safe? With the increasing use of mobile devices and the prominence of social media in our lives, cyber crime poses serious security risks, especially for small businesses. In 2013 alone, cyber crime has cost Canadians $3 billion (in USD) according to a recent Norton report. “Being cyber safe is a practice that should be part of a company’s regular operations,” says Paul T. Ryan, Chief Technology Officer for Yellow Pages Group, a company that provides digital media and marketing solutions to Canada’s small businesses. “Small business owners may believe that they are too small to be targeted by cyber criminals, but the fact is that they’re a huge target because of their often less robust security systems.”

subtle changes to that company’s logo and name, hoping that you won’t notice and that you will pay the invoice. Start-ups are especially vulnerable to illegitimate companies claiming to represent the government by offering them funding programs which are hard to understand. Cyber Fraud: Most small business owners are aware of malicious software that poses online security threats. Spyware, malware, and trojan horses are all designed to gain access to sensitive information stored on your computer by tricking you to click a link or visit a fake website. Even social media platforms are potential risks with links sent by a direct message from fans’ and friends’ accounts. But fewer people know about mobile phone scams. Text messages and missed calls coming from numbers you don’t recognize can charge a premium rate when you call or answer back. Small companies who rely most on their mobile phone for business are prime targets. Identity theft: Scammers are assuming business identities in order to steal company assets, such as client lists, credit card information, and business relationships. Confidential electronic information and paper document thefts can be committed in the most mundane way, when computers are not properly password protected or files are left out in the open. Some businesses also do not take proper steps to destroy sensitive data safely, making dumpster-diving and hacking into company networks easy ways to access information. Once businesses have identified their areas of vulnerability to fraud, they can then start taking periodic assessments of risks and developing a simple response plan to guide staff and management in cases when fraud is detected. More information on this topic is available online at yellowpages360solution.ca/fraud.

Ryan suggests implementing a few security measures for small businesses that are looking to protect themselves against cyber fraud: • Tablets and smartphones are great tools for sales teams but, because of their size, they are a target for both theft and fraud. Always protect your devices with a password, frequently back-up your data, and install security, encryption, and locator apps to protect sensitive business information. Most importantly, don’t access private information on free Wi-Fi networks, as they often aren’t very secure. • With the growing use of mobile comes the move to cloud computing. It’s great for data storage, as well as for marketing and sales, but this means that you’re storing your data online, outside your business and sometimes outside the country. Protect yourself by using a service that allows you to encrypt information before uploading or sharing and by only giving access to a limited number of people in your organization. Don’t forget to do your research before choosing a service provider; read their legal terms, know where your data is being stored, and make sure their service fits your security needs. • Social media sites provide another marketing tool for small businesses to reach their potential customers, but they’re also easy targets for hackers looking to get access to private business information. If you’re using social media to promote your business, select only a small number of individuals who can post on your company’s behalf. Also, it’s important to use the site’s privacy controls, ignore requests for sensitive business information, and continue to be on the lookout for spam posts. For small businesses, cyber crime continues to be a very real threat. Ultimately, cyber safety must become the responsibility of all members of an organization, and with the implementation of simple security measures, the high cost of falling victim to this kind of fraud can often be prevented.

Small buSineSS confidence dips slightly in March

S

mall business optimism across Canada slipped a little in March. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business’ (CFIB) latest Business Barometer index settled to 64.1 this month compared to 64.4 in February and 64.0 in January – a stable start to 2014.

“The national number is buoyed somewhat by very good results in the prairies,” said Ted Mallett, CFIB’s vice-president and chief economist.“Alberta and Saskatchewan are traditionally strong, and Manitoba also had a modest rebound in March. This pocket of strength offsets somewhat less encouraging numbers in other parts of the country.” For the first time in nine months, Alberta found itself back on top this month in terms of small business confidence, with an index of 72.7. Saskatchewan (66.4), Manitoba (61.4), and to a lesser extent Ontario (63.7), also gained ground in March. Meanwhile, optimism levels in Newfoundland & Labrador (65.9), Quebec (58.7) and Prince Edward Island (57.6) were headed down. British Columbia (71.2), Nova Scotia (57.9) and New Brunswick (56.9) saw little change. By sector, March optimism levels improved in agriculture, construction, wholesale, retail and information, as well as arts and recreation. These gains were offset by declines in the manufacturing, transportation, professional services and hospitality sectors. “Small businesses are sending some mixed signals this month about where the economy is headed,” added Mallett.“Hiring expectations remain strong, with 26 per cent of small businesses expecting to add full-timers, and only seven per cent expecting to cut staff in the coming months. That is very encouraging. However, only 36 per cent see their businesses as being ‘in good shape’, and that is the lowest reading we’ve seen since mid-2010. We will watch these indicators with great interest going forward.” Measured on a scale of 0 and 100, an index level above 50 means owners expecting their businesses’ performance to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting weaker performance. According to past results, index levels normally range between 65 and 70 when the economy is growing at its potential. The March 2014 findings are based on 1,115 responses, collected from a stratified random sample of CFIB members, to a controlled-access web survey. Findings are statistically accurate to +/- 2.9 per cent 19 times in 20. CFIB is Canada’s largest association of small and medium-sized businesses with 109,000 members across every sector and region.

Merchants have rights with credit and debit payments Eastern Ontario

W

hen processing debit and credit card payments, merchants have options and they also have rights.

If you are a merchant, it’s worth knowing the terms of your agreements for payment processing services. The Code of Conduct for the Credit and Debit Card Industry in Canada requires that merchants receive a minimum of 90 days’ notice of any new fees or fee increases related to credit or debit card transactions, and this 90-day period begins when the merchant has been provided with sufficient information about the change to allow the merchant to reasonably assess the cost implications for them. Merchants are allowed to cancel their contracts without penalty within 90 days of receiving notice of a new fee or a fee increase that was not provided for in the agreement.

In addition, when a service provider is offering a package that includes contracts with more than one party, it must give the merchant a consolidated summary of key information about each contract before they enter into an agreement. Find out more about the Code from the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada on its website, itpaystoknow.gc.ca. Look for information about the credit and debit card industry, a merchant’s rights when dealing with that industry, as well as tips for choosing a payment service provider. NC

Mortgage regulators

make knowing the rules a little easier for brokers

T

he Mortgage Broker Regulators’ Council of Canada (MBRCC) have developed a tool to help mortgage brokers better understand the licensing requirements for mortgage transactions that cross provincial borders.

The MBRCC designed the tool to provide brokers with guidance and to help them identify the licensing requirements for mortgages where the borrower, the broker and/or the property are in different provinces. When users select the location for each, they are provided with information on the likely licensing requirements. “Brokers need to know which requirements apply before they can arrange the mortgage,” Kirk Bacon, MBRCC Chair, said.“This tool is easy to use and it’s a great place for them to start.” The provinces have adopted different approaches to determine whether a license is required. The MBRCC tool simplifies the licensing process by considering the locations of the borrower, the broker and the property. While not the only elements used to determine whether and from which jurisdiction a license is needed, where the borrower, broker and property are located often affect which rules apply.

“Technology that makes transactions across provinces possible is becoming more and more common,” Bacon added “Anyone who brokers a mortgage that has elements in different provinces needs to know the rules that apply. This tool is here to help with that.”

About MBRCC: The MBRCC is an inter-jurisdictional association of mortgage broker regulators that seeks to improve and promote harmonization of mortgage broker regulatory practices to serve the public interest. Its members work together and with stakeholders to identify trends and address common regulatory issues through national solutions that support consumer protection and an open and fair marketplace. MBRCC members represent the nine provinces that currently have legislative and regulatory frameworks governing mortgage brokers or have an interest in developing one; British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland & Labrador.

Mortgages

PRIVATE LENDING IS NOT JUST FOR RICH PEOPLE... IT WILL MAKE YOU RICH! For many years, we have been assisting people to make their money really work for them in mortgage lending. Most of the big, RICH, private lenders out there started out as just average people, that took the leap into mortgage lending regardless of what friends and family thoughts were. Many are stricken with fear of losing their money when contemplating this investment vehicle. Before dismissing this investment direction, consider the following points. Private lending can be very financially rewarding. Private lending is certainly not like putting funds into a guaranteed account with a guaranteed rate and a modest return. Yes, there is a bit more involved. The mortgage brokerage you work with is key. The typical brokerage will have a range of mortgage offerings that will include offerings that cater to individuals that are in a dire position. They may be losing their property and/or their mortgage is in arrears, their credit is challenged and they need to consolidate. The banks will not lend under such circumstances as the risk is too high. These are the type of deals I would not lend on, but are the basis of the high yielding returns. Lending criteria has changed so drastically in the past few years. Banks have really tightened up their lending rules, specifically when it comes to income properties. This is when a private lender can come into play and really leverage on this opportunity to make anywhere from 8-20% annual return. These clients generally have clean credit, good income and other assets. This would make for a safer investment. Lending your Self Directed RRSPs: You can utilize your RRSPs in this type of investment. Most folks are seeing very slim returns in their plans, unless you are in the industry of watching markets, you typically will not experience anything positive. The Self Directed route is really not too difficult in terms of process. The broker should handle the entre process from providing you the lender with the complete details of the investment so you can make an informed decision. – Check List: Credit bureau, credit application, appraisal or an evaluation, income and a scenario of why these borrowers are seeking funds. Note: Not all RRSP plan holders will allow for you to self direct your funds into mortgages. Please confirm with your plan holder as to their protocol on mortgage lending. I am aware of plans that do so and have worked with them for several years, some are much less work and make it easier and less costly for you the lender. You can also make equity in your home really work for you as the current rates are insanely low, borrow at a variable rate of 2.102.50% and lend at 9-20%, great profit. This is a great venue for people that are sitting on equity. For example, for a senior that has reduced income, this can bring you additional funds monthly and give you the peace of mind you are looking for. Scenario – Borrow a mortgage for 100K your monthly payment @ 2.25% interest and a 25 year amortization would be $436. Lend 100k at 14% interest at an interest only monthly payment of $1,167. Your profit is a super $731 per month. In addition, you are paying down your mortgage with this borrower’s interest payments. As a bonus, you are also paying down principal of $3,018 in the first year (this will increase over time). So, you can service your debt, pay-down your principal loan and earn extra income to build a retirement nest egg. Not bad. At the end of the typical one year term the funds come back and you can re-invest again. Ok, so that is the positive side of this investment vehicle. What about the risks? What if a borrower does not pay their mortgage? The private lender is typically in second position. It is imperative for you to confirm that the first mortgage is up to date so you can control the sale process. Don’t let this scare you. If you have a good loan to value on the property you will be in a good position to charge back costs plus any associated fees to the sale. The key in managing your risk is to do your proper due diligence on the property and get a realistic valuation from a reputable Appraiser or valuator. There is a lot of detail in this, but with proper counsel, the returns are worth this potential risk. Being a private lender has made people very wealthy. Do not let fear cripple your vision of having a great return. Contact carmen@profunds.ca for complete details and start to make your funds work for you – build your wealth.

Commercial lease agreements: Why landlords need lawyers By Jayson Schwarz and Konstantine Chatzidimos

O

wnership of income-producing properties typically involves the negotiation of commercial leases with your tenant(s). This article explores a few of the considerations inherent in the negotiation and drafting of commercial lease agreements. Covering off all the bases

Commercial leases are complex documents and in this article we can only skim the surface. You need to speak to a lawyer who understands this area of law. There are fundamental components of the lease which a solicitor should prepare/review to ensure it meets your practical and commercial expectations. Principally, you will want rental payments defined and broken into “base rent” and “additional rent.” Base rent is your money. This is the amount used to determine net income. Additional rent represents all of the expenses that may be shared by the tenant or paid directly for utilities such as electricity, water and gas and things like maintenance insurance and realty taxes. If you are thinking of a net-net lease this is critical. Have you ensured the lease clearly defines how any increases in rent during the lease term are calculated? 12G COM

Aside from the financial considerations noted above, commercial leases must also cover off any “special” requirements to prevent confusion going forward; as an example, use clauses or renewal terms. Tenants typically prefer leases with renewal options. Tenants typically also desire the ability to “assign” their lease as this affords them flexibility to sell their business. Any such provisions should give you broad discretion to vet any prospective assignee to ensure they would be a prudent and reliable tenant. The lease should make sure the tenant will pay any legal and/or administrative costs incurred on any renewal or assignment of the lease. Negotiation of the lease Landlords often have their standard form or “boiler-plate” commercial lease agreement which they present to prospective tenants for review prior to execution. Savvy tenants will typically have retained a lawyer to review the document and offer proposed amendments. In a scenario where there will be a back-and-forth in respect of the ultimate wording – and particularly where the prospective tenant has retained a lawyer – I highly recommend hiring a solicitor to quarterback the negotiations. From my practice I have found landlords all-too willing to cut out provisions which could severely compromise them in the interests of not losing the tenant. Conclusion It goes without saying that all warranties, representations and terms outlining the landlord/tenant relationship must be incorporated into the lease agreement. These documents can often run between 30 to 50 pages in length. It is far better for your commercial lease to be “too long” than “too short.” Sitting down with an experienced commercial lawyer to properly negotiate and draft your commercial lease at the front end can save you considerable aggravation down the line. Perhaps the most difficult part of writing these articles relates not to the actual writing, but thinking of a topic to address. Please mail, deliver or fax letters to the magazine or to us, use the website (schwarzlaw.ca), email (schwarz@schwarzlaw.ca), or phone us at 1-888-609-8888 and give us your questions, concerns, critiques and quandaries. We will try to deal with them in print or electronic form.
