Economic Recovery Underway by Dave Hobden, Economist at Central 1 Credit Union

The international financial crisis that emerged in June 2008 is largely over. There are early signs of a global economic recovery and confidence in financial institutions is returning. The market value of many risky assets is rising as investor confidence builds. The global economy is forecast to continue recovering, although high levels of government and household debt in most mature economies will subdue the rate of growth.

Tax-Free Savings Account

We have been asked quite a few questions about Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) at the office lately and I thought it would be a good topic for this month’s column.

A TFSA is a registered savings plan, which allows any Canadian resident of 18 years of age or older to earn investment income that is tax-free. The contribution limit is of $5,000 per year and you can withdraw your funds at any time. To take advantage of the flexibility of withdrawals, you should consider investing your savings in a combination of investment such as high interest savings account, GICs and mutual funds.

Harmonized Sales Tax

This past summer the Government of BC announced its intention to implement a Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which effectively combines the two sales taxes we pay now (GST & PST), into one tax called the HST. We can expect that the HST will be in effect as of July 1, 2010.

RRSP Contributions

March 1, 2010 …for some it will be a great day on the slopes, a birthday, an anniversary, another day at work and for others, the disappearance of the little black cloud that has been hanging over their heads because they will have made the final contribution to their RRSPs for the 2009 tax year.

Of course most of you already know about this deadline but I thought I would take the opportunity to bring a few key terms to your attention since these RRSPs affect us differently during the course of our lives.

RAW in 2010 by Robyn Unrau

I started eating raw food seven years ago, when my Mom was first diagnosed with cancer. I’d heard of the healing miracles of eating raw, and I eventually convinced Mom to try a juice cleanse with me.
