WONDERING WHETHER A TFSA OR AN RSP IS RIGHT FOR YOU? HERE’S SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER:

TFSA

A Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a government approved account that allows taxpayers to earn investment income, tax-free. TFSA allows taxpayers to set money aside in eligible investment vehicles and watch those savings grow tax-free throughout their lifetime.

  • Annual contribution limit is $5,500.
  • Investment income earned and withdrawals from your TFSA are tax-free; withdrawals may be restricted by investment terms.
  • Contributions are not tax deductible.
  • Unused contribution room can be carried forward indefinitely. If you withdraw funds from your TFSA, your contribution room will be re- established in the following year.
  • Investments like mutual funds or common shares can be held in a TFSA.
  • Money earned or withdrawn is non taxable. This means that all interest, dividends or capital gains earned are tax-free.
  • Funds withdrawn will not affect federal income-tested benefits or credits.
  • TFSA assets can be transferred to a spouse upon death of the Holder.
  • All Canadian residents 18 years or older that have a Social Insurance Number are eligible.

RRSP

A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a government approved plan that allow you to save money for your retirement years.

  • Contributions are tax deductible up to the deduction limit found on your Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency.
  • Investment income accumulates tax-deferred.
  • Tax is payable only when you withdraw funds from your plan.
  • No minimum contribution age, but must have earned income.
