What Their Clients Say...

"When I walked in to my first appointment with Chris I knew nothing about investments or RRSPs, and he made me feel at ease and took his time explaining everything to me. I left my appointment feeling much more knowledgeable and comfortable with my finances. I met Jeremiah shortly after and he is as equally friendly! I would recommend them to anyone needing a financial advisor! " Jaki M- Google


"My mother is not very tech savvy, but Jeremiah was extremely patient and accommodating for her. He is extremely knowledgeable and has gone far above my expectations for a financial advisor. I gladly recommend Worby Wealth Management for your investment needs."- Danielle B- Google 

A word from Chris Worby. 


"At Worby Wealth, we realize there are many people licensed to give advice but few advisors. We provide purposeful, deliberate advice to our clients and guidance on how to put that advice into action. In order to do this, we spend time with our clients getting to know who they are and what they are trying to accomplish. The plans we develop are the result of significant time and intelligence brought to bear both in discovery and then in recommendations. And, of course, there is no plan without a benchmark. We will meet regularly and consistently whether the markets are up or down to determine if our strategies are working. Ultimately, anything as important as your financial future needs time – and we’ll take that time here." - Chris Worby, Founder of Worby Wealth Management.
 

A word from Sara, the Trusted Regina founder, about her experience with Chris & Jeremiah at Worby Wealth Management. 


From the first moment I met Chris Worby in 2011 I liked him! Chris exudes authentic charm, and he makes you feel at ease. I immediately knew I could trust him and that he was invested in building solid relationships with his clients. Trust is crucial in the financial services industry, and the news is littered with horror stories about dishonest advisors stealing clients' money! Even though that is rare, you have to be comfortable with the person helping you with your finances as you share your financial history and future dreams. Chris and Jeremiah excel at breaking down the acronyms and high-level stuff into bite-size easy-to-digest pieces. They want their clients to understand what they are doing for them. Their offices' are relaxed, comfortable and personalized; you can see who they are as people, which is the opposite of the ' stiff, formal three-piece suit wearing' financial advisors that spring to mind when we think of an industry stereotype. As a team, they have done an excellent job of educating Regina people on the financial industry. There are many expert tips written by them in the Trusted Regina Tip library here, and that investment has served them well as their client base has grown over the last decade as people find them online and like what they see and read! They are incredible partners, and I wish them all the best for the next ten years! "    - Sara Wheelwright

Trusted Regina Financial Advisors at Worby Wealth Management Explain Corporate Estate Planning

Chris Worby and Jeremiah Worby are Trusted Regina based financial advisors and Wealth Management services providers. With over 20 years of experience, Worby Wealth Management has been committed to providing a high standard of financial service to individuals, families and business owners in Regina and area. Worby Wealth Management listens and provides a personalized financial plan. In their latest Worby Wealth Management Trusted Regina Financial Tip, they discuss corporate estate planning. 

The Wealth Building Toolkit: Corporate Estate Planning

So you’ve used your corporation to build wealth and to provide a nice, stable income. At the end of it all, we all go the way we do and it’s time to consider the two inevitabilities in life: death and taxes. 

Upon the death of a shareholder, there is what we call a ‘deemed disposition’ of shares. This means that on the date of death, shareholders are considered to have sold their shares at whatever gain or loss they would incur at that time. Those shares are passed down to a new shareholder in accordance with a will or some corporate documents dictating who becomes the new shareholder. But regardless of what happens after, that shareholder has sold their shares on that date.

This can represent some problems. Let’s say no planning was done and the accounting was sloppy. If the shares were worth, say, $1,000,000 at the time of passing but had little to no cost base, that would be a $1M capital gain adding $500,000 to the income line of a taxpayer’s final tax return and a $208,000 best-case scenario tax bill.*

If the inheriting shareholder didn’t have the means to pay the tax bill and there were no other estate assets, they may have to take a dividend to pay the bill meaning they’d have to declare a $310,000 dividend to pay the tax for the dividend as well as to pay the tax for the estate - again, there are better ways to do this but it’s the least tax efficient way to manage the tax bill.

One of the ways to manage the tax bill is to own life insurance in the corporation yet again. There is a notional account called a ‘Capital Dividend Account’ that certain corporate activities create - one of which is a life insurance payout less the ACB of the policy. This ‘CDA’ allows for dividends to flow through to shareholders without attracting taxation. 

In our example above, if there was an insurance policy in the corporation which is triggered on death which is also when our deemed disposition occurs, there would be money made available to be removed from the corporation with no taxation. This could be used to pay the tax bill and provide tax-free money to remaining shareholders.

These past 3 blogs have shown the corporation as a wonderful tool for both reducing taxes while accumulating wealth, streamlining income for retirement purposes and then how to reduce tax burdens on death. It’s good when we can have all the tools in working condition!

Trusted Regina Financial Advisors at Worby Wealth Management Tip on Wealth Building & Corporate Income

Chris Worby and Jeremiah Worby are Trusted Regina based financial advisors and Wealth Management services providers. With over 20 years of experience, Worby Wealth Management has been committed to providing a high standard of financial service to individuals, families and business owners in Regina and area. Worby Wealth Management listens and provides a personalized financial plan. In their latest Worby Wealth Management Trusted Regina Financial Tip, they discuss corporate income. 

The Wealth Building Toolkit: Corporate Income 

Here you are, ready to retire, and you’re getting all your ducks in a row: assessing your RRSP to RRIF options, seeing how you can maintain OAS through the household, and you have spent your career building wealth in a corporation so that’s a major tool in your kit.

The first and most interesting thing is that, by definition, assets built in your corporate investment account are going to be retained earnings which means you’ll be paying yourself dividends. The upside of dividends is that you also get a dividend tax credit. 

The benefit of dividends is this: let’s say you were targeting this $95,000/yr of net income. From my last blog, we know you’d need to take approximately $130,000 of gross income to provide that net of taxes. A non-eligible dividend to make the same $95,000 net income needs to only be $120,000 - dividends allow for more tax-advantaged income for sure and the saving of $10,000 in this case.*

Another option is to use a life insurance policy. If a corporation were to own a policy with the shareholder as life insured, there could be a cash value built up in the policy against which a loan could be set up to be settled upon the passing of the shareholder. As the insurance policy is not required to declare gains for tax purposes year over year, this tax deferral can lead to larger amounts within the policy and more money available for a loan. 

You’ve noticed I keep referencing ‘tools’ throughout this series. That’s because you can’t screw a screw with a hammer, and you can’t drive a nail with a saw. I mean, I suppose you could do those things but let’s attempt a little efficiency here! I think of retirement planning as exactly this, pulling out the right tool for the job. And in this example of having a high level of corporate assets, insurance is a great tool to help build that wealth to do the job of providing security of income in retirement.

In the next blog, we’re going to talk about insurance in corporations again but from more of an estate planning perspective - no surprise but insurance is very helpful in dealing with taxes in an estate.

Trusted Regina Financial Advisors at Worby Wealth Management Discuss Wealth Building and Corporations

Chris Worby and Jeremiah Worby are Trusted Regina based financial advisors and Wealth Management services providers. With over 20 years of experience, Worby Wealth Management has been committed to providing a high standard of financial service to individuals, families and business owners in Regina and area. Worby Wealth Management listens and provides a personalized financial plan. In their latest Worby Wealth Management Trusted Regina Financial Tip, Jeremiah shares how corporations are a fantastic tool for building wealth. 


The Wealth Building Toolkit: Corporations 


There are many tools that are useful to build wealth. Virtually everyone has access to account types such as RRSPs and TFSAs. These are accounts which have special tax treatments such that we can reduce our overall taxation while we are alive and accumulating wealth. Pensions and group RRSPs are also useful and often an employer will give additional funds to these plans which is of obvious benefit.


For those of us who are not employees though, we may be able to use another tool - the corporation. If someone is self-employed and legally able to have their corporation take their income, this can be very helpful.


The key to using a corporation efficiently is that the earnings a taxpayer has is not all required. Active income for a small business conducted in Saskatchewan is taxed at a low rate of 11%. If a person’s income level is high enough that they don’t require all of it, leaving income behind in a corporation to invest may be much more efficient than taking it all as income and then investing.


Let’s look at an example:

John needs $95,000/year after tax for lifestyle but earns $250,000/yr gross. If he took all this money, paid tax and then invested the remainder, he’d have approximately $66,760* to invest at the end of the year.

If he were able to and chose to use a corporation, however, he’d take $130,000 gross income from the corp and pays approximately $35,000 in tax leaving $120,000 behind. 11% tax for taxes leaves him with $106,800 for investing.

The difference of using a corporation in this example leaves him with an additional $39,920 or 60% more money to invest to build his wealth.

Clearly, corporations are a fantastic tool for building wealth. The next blog is going to look at strategies to get this money out of the corporation on a tax-advantaged basis.

Trusted Regina Financial Advisors at Worby Wealth Management Provide Their Year End Financial Checklist

Chris Worby and Jeremiah Worby are Trusted Regina based financial advisors and Wealth Management services providers. With over 20 years of experience, Worby Wealth Management has been committed to providing a high standard of financial service to individuals, families and business owners in Regina and area. Worby Wealth Management listens and provides a personalized financial plan. In their latest Worby Wealth Management Trusted Regina Financial Tip, Jeremiah shares their year end financial checklist.


Year End Financial Checklist

by Jeremiah Worby 


It's near the end of another year. You've probably been busy planning parties, planning pranks, and soon to be attending holiday events, but there's one thing that needs your attention – your personal finances.  It's time to start reviewing how much money you have saved up for retirement and other important costs in life. 


HERE'S HOW 


Do you have any RRSP room left for 2022?

If your RRSP room is $10,000 and you have already contributed $6,000 to an RRSP this year, then that means you have only… hold on give me a minute here – carry the 9… oh yeah,  $4,000 of available room for 2022.

If you don't have any remaining RRSP room for 2022, then no other RRSP contributions can be made before year-end.  That being said, if there are other registered plans (e.g., a TFSA) that you haven't maxed out yet for this year, then it may still be worthwhile contributing what is needed to fill up your existing registered plans so long as doing so doesn't exceed their respective contribution limits.


Are your TFSA contributions up to date?

TFSAs are a great way to save for retirement. Straight from the Canadian government’s website



The TFSA program began in 2009. It is a way for individuals who are 18 years of age or older and who have a valid social insurance number (SIN) to set money aside tax-free throughout their lifetime. Contributions to a TFSA are not deductible for income tax purposes. "

Unused contribution room from previous years carries forward to future years.  A quick check with your MyCRA account (or office Dwight – he seems to know everything) should let you know exactly how much TFSA room you currently have.



Have you funded your children's RESPs this year?

Whether you have two children or twelve, saving up for their education is a top priority for lots of families.  The biggest benefit of RESPs is that a grant from the Canadian government of up to $7,200 can be earned over the life of the plan.

The money in an RESP can be used for various education costs, not just for tuition.  There is no tax on the investment earnings as long as it remains in the plan.  Contributions are not tax deductible, however withdrawals called educational assistance payments are included in the student’s income.


Do you have enough life insurance coverage in case something happens to you?

Life insurance is an important part of financial planning.  The question is, do you have enough?  Pro tip: $100 Million is probably more than what you need.

You should consider getting life insurance coverage to protect your family from being left with financial burdens if something happens to you.

It's important to know how much coverage you need and what kind of coverage makes sense for your situation.  You can get a free life insurance quote by contacting Worby Wealth Management.


A review of personal finances at the end of the year makes sense

It’s a good idea to review your personal finances at the end of the year. This way, you can ensure that you are on track with your goals and make adjustments as needed.

You should review:

  • Your financial situation – How much debt do you have?  How much money do you have in savings?  What are your investments doing?  If there is anything that needs to be changed or improved, now is the time for it!
  • Your financial goals – What are some things that need improving?  Are there any new goals that could be set for next year?
  • Investments – Is your portfolio set up for long-term growth or short-term gain? Are your investment goals aligned with your time horizon and risk tolerance (e.g., saving for retirement vs. building wealth).  Have any recent market events caused you to rethink this part of your financial plan?  If yes, make sure to contact Worby Wealth Management for a free second opinion. 
  • Insurance coverage –  Does your current insurance cover all important aspects of your life (e.g., health care, disability income, burial expenses) while still being affordable?  What other types of coverage might make sense moving forward as life circumstances change (e.g., term insurance for those years while you’re still carrying a mortgage).

Conclusion

The end of the year is a good time to review your finances and make sure you're on track for the new year.  It's also a great opportunity to look back at the financial decisions you've made over the past 12 months and see if there might be room for improvement.  If so, now is the perfect time to make those changes!
