How Does TFSA Work?
–Any Canadian above the age of 18 can open an TFSA account to deposit and save their excess money.
–There is a cap on the amount that can be deposited in this account which is prone to change every year.
–This cap (say $5,000) if not filled this year, can be carried forward to extent your next year’s cap (say $5,200 + previous years un-utilized capacity)
–Any amount crossing the cap is prone to a penalty.
–This amount accumulated in the account can be used to make multiple investments as listed as follows:
- Mutual Funds
- Listed Securities
- Bonds or Shares of Small Businesses
- Guaranteed Investment Certificates
–All earnings on such investments are not prone to any tax, and can be taken home fully.
–In case you plan to withdraw any amount in a particular year, you stand the chance to deposit it back the next year above the cap limit.
–In Simple Words:
Your Cap this year= Current year declared cap+ previous year’s unutilized capacity + previous year’s withdrawal
