Retirement Compensation Arrangement

Reward And Retain Valued Employees

As a small business owner, you know that one of your most valuable assets is your key employees. Although this may be reflected in their compensation, RRSP contribution limits may not allow many of these individuals to accumulate tax-sheltered retirement savings that are truly relative to their incomes. With a Retirement Compensation Arrangement (RCA), you can offer these key employees an alternative and give yourself a competitive advantage in safeguarding their loyalty.

An RCA can help you grow your incentive programs to reward and retain highly valued employees. Your employees can benefit from being able to secure their financial futures and maximize their retirement savings.

Benefits For Corporations And Their Employees

RCAs can create a win-win situation. Benefits include:

Corporation Benefits
  • Excellent employee retention tool
  • Assets held in trust and potentially protected from corporation's creditors
  • RCA can be used as collateral for loans

Employee Benefits

  • Supplements retirement savings
  • Not considered a taxable benefit
  • No impact to RRSP contribution levels
