Income Taxes

Completing a personal income tax return is one of those things on your list that is easy to put off, like a car with an oil leak. Instead of taking it to the mechanic, you might just add oil to it. “It’s a slow leak,” you tell yourself. Well before you know it, there is a huge puddle of oil on your driveway, and you can’t even go to work. Taxes are just like that.

Personal income tax planning is not just about writing the government a cheque; it can be a deeply involved process that takes months of planning. This careful work can dramatically lower the taxes you owe. Every investment option has a tax implication, and understanding the tradeoffs between each choice is critical to maximizing your returns.

RRSP, RRIF, LIF, TFSA, JWROS, LIRA – who can make sense of this alphabet soup? A financial advisor can help you understand the your investment options, their different taxation rates, and how they fit into your overall financial strategy. The more assets you have, the more complicated this process can become. Owning a corporation, being a beneficiary of a trust, or being in a limited partnership can all affect your tax plan.

Investment tax planning is another essential service offered by our team of financial advisors. Not only can an advisor help you choose the right investment options, they can show you why some alternatives aren’t the best fit for you.

A WORD FROM OUR CLIENTS

  • There are no words I can express how grateful I am having Chan working for me. I trust him explicitly as his knowledge and caring personality has proven itself again and again over the years. I never hesitate for a moment to refer my family and friends. None have been anything but pleased.

  • It has been a few years I know Chan Yin as my Financial Advisor. He is very professional and hard to deliver the best for your investments.

  • What can I say about Better Financial? How about they are better than just a financial Advisor in my experience.

    I've been a long standing client of Chan Yin and his team for over 15 years and it's not only what they have done for me financially, it's the personal approach that's kept me with such an incredible and caring company. They have met and exceeded all my goals and have always been there for me. I can't say enough about how professional and kind hearted the team at Better Financial are.

    I have recommended them to all my friends and family and no one has ever been disappointed. Thank you again for all you have done and do for me.

  • Our friends who had previously worked with Chan referred us for our first home purchase. We weren't experienced in this area and didn’t want to make a mistake. Chan was so helpful in guiding us through the process of getting our first mortgage. He also got us a better rate than what we found on our own. His warm and genuine personality inspired trust. This was important for us; we had a good experience and were pleased with the result.

  • We have been working with Chan for a number of years and have found him to provide clear and concise advice in a highly professional manner. He has spent time understanding us, where we are coming from and our goals; has provided clarity on our existing financial planning and has provided us with a clear strategy as to how we achieve the goals that we have.

  • We have been referring clients to Chan for a number of years now. He has always provided them with sound advice and they appreciate his friendly yet professional manner. Over the years he has earned my trust and I now have every confidence that any client I refer to him will receive the best possible service.
