Many companies offer their employees Deferred Profit Sharing Plans. Contributions to the plan can be set by a wide variety of formulas. The DPSP is very similar to an RRSP, with the only major difference being that the DPSP contributions reduce RRSP room a year later, allowing you higher RRSP contribution amounts this year.
|Tax on growth||no||no|
|Retirement||RIF, annuity||Xfer to RRSP RIF, annuity|
|Employer contributions as income on T4||yes||no|
|EI & CPP Deductions||yes||no|
|Receipt||yes||no , included in PA|
|Lowers RRSP room||same year||next year|
