CRA Capital Dividend Account

Do you like taking money out of your company tax-free?

Most business owners learn pretty quickly that if they take money out of their business for personal use, they’ll end up paying personal tax on the withdrawal as either:

  • A salary
  • Or taxable dividend

However, not all dividends from a company will necessarily cause the individual to pay personal tax. One common example of this is when a dividend is paid out of a company’s "Capital Dividend Account”.

To find out if your company has a capital dividend account, or how to set up a CRA Capital Dividend Account to pay yourself a tax-free capital dividend, contact your Manning Elliott tax advisor today.
