I run an editorial services company in Vancouver BC - a company called Unreel Media. Its not a bad company, as far as companys go. Makes a little profit, keeps thirty writers in rent and food, but it has an added benefit to dozens - perhaps hundreds - of other people, all over the world... a benefit that few companies I know of could boast.
See, my company is also a money lender. No, were not loan sharks, and were not a payday loan outfit. Rather, we give loans to people in places like the Sudan and Tanzania, Samoa and Cambodia, Honduars and Bulgaria, in the form of business loans for entrepreneurs who wish to get themselves and their families out of poverty forever.
Ping all those FReepers you know who can bear to see the language...
Maybe the Canadian tax people should look into this guy’s company. Does he/she really send $$’s overseas? I wonder what percentage is his/her “small profit”.
