Whether it's loss of income for an individual or profit/loss calculations for a business, determining income is often essential when assessing claim. The challenge is in knowing what documentation, and more specifically, what information on those documents, will provide you with the insight you require. Along with highlighting what data to focus on, our expert presenters will reveal how you can collect the information you need from a variety of alternate sources when you don't have everything at your fingertips.


  • Differentiate between types of personal income: employment vs. self-employment
  • Recognize income related documents for different types of businesses: corporation vs. sole proprietorship/partnership
  • Identify information required from various documents to determine income:
         - Income statements and balance sheets
         - Income tax returns and Notice of Assessment
         - Original source documents (ie. invoices, timesheets)
  • Understand why certain information is significant in determining revenue and expenses
  • Determine variable and fixed costs and their impact
