Much like RRSPs, Flow-Through share investing allows the investor to deduct 100% of the investment against personal income in the year of investment. On termination of the Flow-Through LP, the investment is rolled into a designated mutual fund corporation. The investor may now sell the fund, where their taxable capital gain is limited to 50% of the proceeds.
In combination with the tax deferral achieved by the corporate class roll-over, an investor may also take advantage of any capital loss carry-forwards they have, which can be used to offset their capital gain.
This calculation tool is of a general nature only and is not intended to be, nor should it be construed to be, legal or tax advice to any particular investor, and no representations with respect to the tax consequences to any particular investor are made. There are many aspects of federal and income tax laws which may be relevant to any potential investor. Accordingly, each prospective investor should obtain independent advice from a tax advisor who is knowledgeable in the area of income tax law regarding the income tax considerations applicable to investing in flow-through funds based on the investor’s own particular circumstances.
The income tax considerations applicable to an investor will vary depending on a number of factors, including whether units of flow-through funds are characterized as capital property, the province or territory in which he or she resides, carries on business, or has a permanent establishment, the amount that would be his or her taxable income but for the interest in the flow-through fund, and the legal characterization of the investor as an individual, corporation, trust, or partnership.
