Proactive, tax integrated solutions...

Personal tax planning is an important component of a client’s financial plan. A limited number of options are still available to Canadians to lower their taxes through careful tax planning. A taxpayer can defer taxes to a future lower tax bracket year by making use of various registered savings plans. It may also be possible for an individual in a higher tax bracket to split income with a family member who is in a lower tax bracket.

 

An equally important tax consideration is the type of income generated by your investments. Different types of investment income - eg; interest, dividend and capital gains - are treated differently for tax purpose in non-registered accounts. Interest income is generally taxed at a higher rate than the other two. It takes careful planning to ensure that your investments are tax efficient and you are left with more after tax income.

 

Various insurance products may also have a place in a client's overall portfolio to optimize taxes.
