TFSAs made easy
Friday January 26, 2018
A trip, a house, a car, a comfortable retirement… Do you have big plans? Start saving now, with a tool that performs! A tax-free savings account (TFSA) is just what you need.
An account like no other
TFSAs are accounts in which deposits can grow tax-free. The yearly contribution limit is $5,500. Can’t make the maximum contribution? Not to worry! You can roll over this contribution room year to year.
Let’s say you deposit $2,800 in your TFSA this year. The $2,700 difference will be added to the $5,500 limit next year. You will therefore be able to contribute $8,200, and so on. Over the years, you can save a lot!
And, if you’ve never contributed to a TFSA before, you can invest up to $57,500 in 2018!
The right investment products for you
For money to grow well, it needs to be invested properly, either in investments with fixed interest rates or market-linked investments. Savings accounts, term savings, guaranteed investment certificates (GICs), market-linked guaranteed investments, mutual funds… With so many options, you can make use of different investment vehicles, based on your profile and objectives. Need expert advice? Your adviser can help you choose a strategy tailored to your goals.
Make saving a habit
You don’t need to be rich to make your dreams come true! Depositing just $10, $15 or $20 a week in a TFSA will go a long way. Over the weeks, months and years, the money you accumulate generates non-taxable interest, which makes your investment even more profitable. It’s a lot more effective than a traditional savings account! Furthermore, you can make withdrawals at any time, which are never taxable—even the interest. Give yourself the means to carry out your plans … all your plans!
