First Time Home Buyer?

Published by on

Are you ready to invest in your first home, and looking around for ways to fund it? The Canada Revenue Agency’s Home Buyer's Plan (HBP) permits a "first-time buyer" to withdraw RRSP funds for use towards the purchase of a home. Unlike other RRSP withdrawals, an HBP withdrawal is not reported as income.

There are a number of criteria that must be met in order to be eligible for the plan. In addition, the funds must be repaid to an RRSP within a maximum 15-year period, or be taken as income.

For more detailed information, you can check out the CRA website or contact us.
