FAQ

Tax advisors typically provide advice and guidance in one piece of an individual’s financial situation – tax. A financial advisor considers all pieces of an individual’s financial situation and creates a plan that encompasses all elements

A proper tax plan requires a complete understanding of an individual’s financial picture. A cashflow statement – details of all income sources; net worth statement – assets and the details of their acquisition.

One problem with tax planning is the focus on one element of an individual’s financial situation. Strategies to reduce taxes may have a negative impact to other parts of their financial situation.

By utilizing tax strategies and other tools, an individual can reduce their taxes payable to benefit their current and future financial positions.

The earlier the better. The year that an individual starts earning taxable income is the opportune time to think about ways to reduce tax.

Your wealth increases with every dollar that remains with you and not with the CRA. Strategies employed to reduce your taxes payable not only preserve your wealth but grow it as well.

Tax deferral means to delay paying tax on income, until a future event. Tax-exempt means taxes are not payable on income earned.  An example of a Tax-deferred account is a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (“RRSP”).  You do not pay tax on the money until withdrawn.  An example of a tax-exempt account is a Tax Free Savings Account (“TFSA”).  You do not pay tax on investment income earned nor on any withdrawals.

Any type of account that provides deferral or exemption of tax is beneficial for retirement. It is not a cookie-cutter answer, but both accounts can be utilized in a retirement cashflow plan.
