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
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
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.
