Re: Five Years in Nova Scotia

Re: UK Pension Transfer to Canada

Wow - Thanks for letting me know. I'm curious though - how would HMRC know if you withdrew money from a plan in Canada, and why would they care ?

Re: UK Pension Transfer to Canada

This is interesting. I am a perm resident in Canada and hence a tax resident also. I have a company RRSP in Canada, and 3 company pensions in the UK that I was looking to transfer over at some stage,...

Re: RRSP Contributions and Tax Returns

From what I understand if it's a plan administered by your employer (or by a 3rd party on behalf of them) and you don't get to 'touch' the money, it's allowed. There is reference to this on the CRA...

Re: RRSP Contributions and Tax Returns

I think that covers it. It is a company scheme administered by Standard Life. The contributions are part of my package and are made by the company direct to Standard Life. Does it make any difference...

Re: RRSP Contributions and Tax Returns

Yes, I have contributed more that $2000 in '09 & '10

I don't have a deduction limit. 2008 earnings we limited to interest earnings, as I wasn't working for a while whenI first got to Canada.

Re: Dilemma.....advice on an area in Halifax, NS

This is good advice. Gottigen Street is about what it might be able to offer in years to come. If you are renting that is of little comfort. If it were me, there is no way I would rent in Gottigen...

Re: Want to know some good areas of Halifax/Dartmouth.

Lady Hammond Road is OK - not the best part of town but far from the worst (I work there !) It's Halifax side but has good access to Dartmouth as it's really close to the bridge

RESPs

Has anyone researched where the best (or a good) place to set up RESPs is ?

Also, if we have 2 kids, is it best to set up one family plan, or 2 separate plans ?
