What are the benefits of a tax-free savings account?

As the goals of the TFSA resonate with what EasyEquities stands for, we quickly launched our own EasyEquities TFSA product that offers the following key benefits:

  • Tax free
As the name implies, all profits / earnings within the TFSA are 100% tax free. Neither the income nor the capital gains earned in a TFSA will be taxed (provided the investor remains within the annual and life-time thresholds).

  • Flexibility

The investor can deposit (within limit) or withdraw whenever he / she likes and can choose how they want to invest - with lump sums, regular investments or a combination of both.

  • Variety
The EasyEquities TFSA allows investors the choice of investing in over 50 different approved ETFs ( Exchange Traded Funds), or in a variety of different Investment Bundles to suit your particular risk profile.

  • Growth potential

Any profits made on the investment do not form part of the investors annual or lifetime limits. This means that you can reinvest the interest, capital gains and dividends, growing your investment even more!

Personal Finance published a great article on Tax-free savings accounts. Of particular interest is their example of the significant impact investing in a Tax-free savings account can have over the lifetime of an investment.
