Borrowing for your RSP can help build towards your retirement

Being able to contribute the maximum possible for your Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) is the best way to build a secure retirement. Not everyone can max out their RSP contributions and need a little help.

That’s where Encompass comes in. Talk to one of our advisors about a top up loan, or a line of credit. 

Potential tax savings

Keeping money out of the tax man’s pocket is something that most Canadians try to do as best as they can. Maximizing your RSP contributions is the best way to not only reduce the amount of taxes that you may have to pay to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), but those funds will also go directly into your retirement funds – which most people fear they don't have enough.

It’s simple, you borrow to help top up your RSP contribution for this year, or room you may have from previous years. Not only will that allow you to save on the taxes you would have paid the government from your marginal tax rate, but also getting it into your RSPs earlier helps build through investment growth sooner than later. All those funds are sheltered from taxes, as long as it is in your RSP.

Ways to grow your money
An RSP is a great way to build your retirement fund, while also saving taxes on income you've earned this year.

Save for your future, while reducing taxes
Top it up to maximize your tax return
Most everyone has a bit of room to allow a top-up to their RSPs, either from their own funds, or a loan to save in taxes

How will it work?
  • Top up loan will give back between 20%-40% of that contribution on your tax return (depending on your tax bracket)
  • Take that return and invest right back to increase your return even more OR;
  • Take the return and pay down the loan - no penalty
  • Short term loan - usually paid back in one year
  • That's money directly into your retirement, not taken in taxes
