Do what most Canadians
are not doing before retirement

Are you paying your “retirement tax”?

As a Canadian consumer, you pay quite a bit in taxes.

If you live in the province of Ontario, for example, in addition to income and other types of taxes, you’re paying 13% in HST on the majority of your purchases.

For the most part, we accept paying sales tax as inevitable. Unless there’s a change to the tax rate, we don’t think much about that extra 13% that disappears from our wallets at the till.

Here’s a novel idea: what if we had a “tax” that we paid to ourselves?

Let’s call it our Personal Retirement Tax (PRT).

What if we decided on a certain percentage to automatically put aside for our retirement.

The idea behind this is that there are many costs that we bear without question, simply because “that’s the way it is.” And yet when it comes to retirement, many experts suggest that Canadians aren’t financially prepared. Yet if we were forced to put aside a percentage of our income to finance retirement, we would simply accept that as inevitable.

So why not start paying yourself a
Personal Retirement Tax?

If your net income is $40,000, for example, and you set your PRT at 13%, that’s $5,200 a year that you’d contribute to your retirement. Over time — say, 20 years — even with modest compound interest or returns on your investment, that could add up to a tidy nest egg of $160,000.*

In order to accumulate that nest egg, you’d only need to save $100 a week. Make it automatic — the same way you would if it were an actual tax being deducted from your pay — by setting up a savings plan to transfer the money each payday from your chequing account into your high-interest savings or your RRSP.

Being a good saver is a state of mind. And making up your mind to pay yourself a PRT could just be the ticket to a leisurely retirement.

Let’s create a plan that can help you incorporate your PRT into your plans, I’m here to help you win financially.

Discover the benefits of Registered Retirement Savings Plans

Here are some questions I can help you answer on our next meeting:

  • Do you need tax deductions?
  • What is your RRSP contribution limit?
  • Do you have any unused RRSP contribution room?
  • Should you apply for a loan?
  • How will you make contributions next year?

Investing in an RRSP is a common Canadian tax strategy. It’s also one of the quickest (and easiest) ways for clients to include tax deductions with their personal income tax filing. It’s important to note that deductions can be used against income, but they can’t bring income into the negative.

  • Help you invest your savings tax-free during your working years to supplement your income during retirement
  • Are transferable to your spouse on a tax-deferred basis if you die
  • Can be used toward the purchase of a home.
  • Can be used to finance your education if you decide to go back to school.
  • Must be transferred to a (registered retirement income fund) by December 31 of the year in which you turn 71

An RRSP is such a powerful savings vehicle because your contributions are tax deductible, and the taxes on any investment growth are deferred until you take your money out. Tax-deductible contributions mean you’ll have more of your income available for your current needs, even while you’re saving for the future. And tax-deferred investment growth (interest, dividends, capital gains) keeps more of your money working for you.

When you withdraw money from your RRSP, it is taxed at your tax rate at the time you take it out. But if you’re like most people, you’ll be retired when you start to take withdrawals, so your tax rate will likely be lower than when you were employed, and you’ll be able to keep more of your hard-earned money.

Speak to your advisor and learn if RRSP’s are right for you.

An RRSP is a retirement savings plan that you establish, that we register, and to which you or your spouse or common-law partner contribute. Deductible RRSP contributions can be used to reduce your tax.

Any income you earn in the RRSP is usually exempt from tax as long as the funds remain in the plan; you generally have to pay tax when you receive payments from the plan.

Deductible contributions: You get immediate tax break by deducting your RRSP contributions from your income each year. Effectively, your contributions are made with pre-tax dollars.

Tax-sheltered earnings: The money you make on your RRSP investments is not taxed as long as it stays in the plan.

Tax deferral: You’ll pay tax on your RRSP savings when you withdraw them from the plan. That includes both your investment earnings and your contributions. But you have deferred this tax liability to the future when it’s possible that your marginal tax rate will be lower in retirement than it was during your contributing years.

Making an RRSP contribution helps you save on taxes – you may even get a tax refund. But what if you don’t have enough money to make a contribution? Should you borrow? Here are 4 factors to consider:

  1. Interest rates
  2. Paying back the loan
  3. Your level of debt
  4. Your taxable income

Instead of borrowing a large amount to make an RRSP contribution, you may want to consider one of the these strategies:

  1. Contribute what you would have paid to service the loan
  2. Take out a series of 1-year loans instead of 1 big loan

Key questions to ask:

  1. Are interest rates low?
  2. Can you pay off the loan quickly?
  3. Do you have the other high-interest debt?

    Needed to post you that little word just to say thanks again over the fantastic opinions you’ve shown above. It has been really seriously open-handed of people like you to present publicly all that a few individuals could possibly have supplied as an e-book in making some dough on their own, certainly given that you could possibly have done it in the event you decided. These ideas also served to be a good way to realize that some people have similar passion just as my very own to grasp a whole lot more on the subject of this problem. I’m certain there are lots of more enjoyable instances up front for folks who scan your blog.
