TFSA Loan FAQ

B2B Bank's TFSA Loan Program allows your clients to borrow money for a current lump-sum contribution within a TFSA, which can allow them to grow their investments on a tax-free basis today. Other benefits include:

Simplified pricing

Pricing is based on the term selected, not the loan amount.

No penalties

All or part of a loan can be repaid at any time without penalty.

Flexible terms

Variable rate loan with a term between one and ten years.

Choice of program

Choose between our Standard loan program (with B2B Bank Dealer Services) or DAP (with various dealers or manufacturers)

A $5,000 minimum applies across all terms.

Yes, loans greater than the lifetime contribution limit, will be assessed based on B2B Bank’s credit qualification criteria. Loans greater than B2B Bank's maximum loan size will be assessed based on B2B Bank’s credit qualification criteria, at the sole discretion of B2B Bank.

All TFSA loan payments are a blend of principal and interest. Applicants may choose to have their monthly payments automatically withdrawn from their bank account on any date between the 1st and the 28th of the month. The first payment is due on the first payment date following the advance of the TFSA loan.

There is no deferral option available for B2B Bank TFSA Loans.

There are no annual or administration fees associated with our TFSA loans. However, should an attempted loan payment come back as NSF (‘Non-sufficient funds’) from the client’s bank account, there will be a $50 NSF fee applied by B2B Bank.

We recommend using our online EASE loan application. Our Electronic Application Submission Entry system allows you to quickly and easily enter, save, print and submit TFSA loan applications on behalf of your clients. Access EASE at b2bbank.com/ease.
