RESP is an investment medium used by parents or grandparents to save for their children or grandchildren’s post-secondary education in Canada.
Benefits of RESP:
Tax-sheltered earnings – Your earnings are all tax-sheltered and when withdrawn the earnings are taxed to the child, who may pay little to no taxes on them as students.
Not just for tuition – The money can be used towards more than just tuition costs – including books, living expenses, other course materials and more.
Potential for grants – The federal government add up to a maximum of $500/year with the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG ), up to a lifetime maximum of $7200 (this is free money).
Flexibility – You can decide how much money should be withdrawn and when it should be withdrawn. The withdrawals can be used for a variety of education costs, including tuition, books and living expenses.
Tax savings – When money is withdrawn and used to pay for the child’s post-secondary education, the plan earnings and government contributions are taxed in the child’s hands. As a student, the child may pay little or no taxes on the money.
