What are the benefits of registered investments?

  • Retirement planning: Your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) accounts provide income tax benefits for your retirement savings. Use these towards your investments, down payment for a home or for you or your spouse to go back to school. The RRIF allows you to make withdrawals after you retire and you decide whether you would like your payments thrice, twice or once a year. Take advantage of our extensive market knowledge to decide what types of investments you would like to hold in both accounts. Set up a meeting today!
  • Education savings: The Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), sponsored by the Canadian government encourages investment for future post-secondary education for your child or another beneficiary. The government contributes a further 20% (with a maximum of $500 on $2,500) on your investment towards the plan. Although the account does not attract any income tax savings it allows for tax free withdrawals towards education. Education expenses are spiralling and you do not want to be caught off guard when it is time to make the payments. Get in touch with us to make an informed decision on whether to leave the funds in a savings account or diversify your investments.
  • Tax-free money: The government calls its new Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) “the single most important personal savings vehicle since the introduction of the RRSP”. Although contributions are not income tax deductible, investment income earned through the account will not be taxed on withdrawal. You can use the funds from the TFSA at any time for any purpose like buying a car or renovating your house. Income-tested credits and benefits, like the GST credit, Canada Child Tax Benefit, Employment Insurance, Old Age Security benefits and the Guaranteed Income Supplement are not impacted.
