AcceleRate Tax-Free Savings Accounts

Shield your investment interest earnings, keep more for yourself.

An AcceleRate Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a great way to put away some extra cash, supplement your retirement savings or save while you’re in retirement. TFSAs were introduced in 2009 to give Canadians a way to save throughout their lifetime without being taxed on earned interest.

 

Key Benefits

  • Interest earned is not taxable.
  • No maintenance fees.
  • Available as a variable savings account or as a fixed-term GIC.

 

Why choose an AcceleRate TFSA?

You can find information about TFSAs, including detailed guides for individuals, on the Government of Canada’s TFSA page.

You are generally eligible for a TFSA if you’re the age of majority in your province and have a valid social insurance number (SIN).

The maximum amount that you can contribute to your TFSA is limited by your TFSA contribution room. Learn more about contribution room on the Government of Canada’s website.

The TFSA allows you the freedom to take out your funds at any time for whatever you need, without being taxed and you can re-contribute them the following year.

AcceleRate Financial offers two TFSA investment options: the Accelerate Variable TFSA or the Accelerate TFSA GIC. With AcceleRate Financial, you can either save with our variable daily interest option, or invest in a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) to receive guaranteed higher rates of return for a predetermined amount of time.

 

 

Variable TFSA

The AcceleRate Variable TFSA gives you the flexibility of our high interest savings offering, but your interest will not need to be declared as income. This is also a great option to start saving to reach the $1,000 minimum to invest into our tax-free GIC.
