Tax Services for Individuals

I will review your financial situation and advise you on the course of action that will help you maximize your tax savings

I will help you to decide how to pass over your wealth to your family members with minimum tax consequences


Many Canadian tax payers face a dilemma when it comes to choosing between investing in the Tax Free Savings Account(TFSA) or the Registered Retirement Savings Plan(RRSP).

While both offer tax shelters to investment income, care should be exercised when deciding which option to settle for to in order to safeguard both your current situation as well as your long-term financial goals.


A registered retirement savings plan meant to encourage Canadians to save for their future. Any gains through interest earned or growth in the amount invested is sheltered from tax as long as the money sits in the account. Any withdrawals are subject to tax.

  • Anyone who has earned income and files a tax return can open and contribute to an RRSP up until the end of the year they turn 71. You can contribute a maximum of 18 per cent of your earned annual income, up to a dollar ceiling that’s set at $27,230 for the 2020 tax year. Any unused contribution room builds up year over year.
  • Contributing to an RRSP by not later than March 01, 2021 may enable Canadians to reduce their taxable income for the year 2020 and consequently help trim their tax bill.
  • RRSPs allow a first time home buyer to make withdrawals to help pay towards the down payment with no tax consequences provided certain conditions are met.
  • However, caution must be applied before investing in an RRSP account. You must look at your overall current financial position and your long-term financial goals. Make sure that your short-term needs are covered and there is cash available for an  emergency.

 Tax Free Savings Account

ThTFSA is a tax-free account that allows you to contribute with your after tax income. The basic contributions together with any income earned and growth made may be withdrawn any time without any tax consequences. The only disadvantage this account has when compared to a RRSP is that the annual contributions have a ceiling.

I assist my clients to file their tax returns as required by the law. This ensures a faster tax refund where due.

I can help you set up the appropriate form of organization, help with the preparation of a business plan and offer seamless business start-up advice.

By law any business is required to maintain books of original entry, sufficient to determine that all taxes are duly accounted for.

Harmonized sales tax (HST) and payroll deductions are held in trust for government agencies.
