Invest in your future while helping lower your income tax bill today. A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a savings plan, registered with the Canadian federal government that you can contribute to for retirement purposes.
RRSP contributions are tax-deductible, meaning that they can be deducted on your current year tax return, potentially reducing the total amount of taxes you pay.
Using Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) is a very effective way to save for retirement and reduce taxable income to save for your longer-term goals.
Your RRSP contributions may be tax deductible, meaning that money earned in your plan could grow tax-deferred until you retire, which means your retirement savings can grow faster.
An RRSP also helps you lower your tax bill today, by allowing you to deduct RRSP contributions from your taxable income. By the time you retire you will likely be in a lower tax bracket, so withdrawals are taxed at a lower rate than today.
the tax management
There's no minimum age required to open an RRSP.
However, some financial institutions may require customers to be the age of majority. You can set up and contribute to an RRSP up to the end of the year you turn 71 as long as you are a Canadian resident, have earned income and file a tax return.
This can vary from person to person. Generally, however, the earlier, the better! It's never too early to start investing for retirement. In fact, investing early can potentially help you reap the benefits of tax-deferred compound interest depending on the type of investment you hold.
You can make a withdrawal from your RRSP any time3 as long as your funds are not in a locked-in plan, but withdrawals will generally be included in your income and subject to tax in the year of withdrawal.
Usually, a portion of the withdrawal will be withheld and remitted to the government as a prepayment of the income tax you will owe for the year.
Depending on the amount of taxable income you're earning in the year of withdrawal, it may be beneficial to put off making withdrawals until a year in which your taxable income will be lower.
In addition, unlike withdrawals from a tax-free savings account (TFSA), withdrawals from an RRSP are not added back to your contribution room in the year following the withdrawal.
You are not allowed to own an RRSP past December 31 of the calendar year you turn 71.
At that point, you’ll have to withdraw funds from the RRSP as a lump sum, transfer its contents to a Registered Retirement Income Fund or purchase an annuity.
RSPs (Retirement Savings Plans) and RRSPs are different names for the same retirement savings plan that is registered with the Federal Government.
You can hold a wide range of investments within an RRSP1, depending on the type of plan, including stocks, bonds, guaranteed investment certificates (GICs), and mutual funds. Investment income earned from these investments, is tax-deferred in the RRSP until you withdraw the funds.
How much you can contribute annually is subject to a maximum contribution amount, known as your RRSP contribution or deduction limit. Your RRSP contribution limit for 2021 is equal to 18% of your 2020 earned income, or $27,830 (whichever is lower) plus previous unused contribution room less any pension adjustments.
