RSP Loans

Where applicable, the appropriate regulatory license is required to sell this product.

In a perfect world, your clients would establish pre-authorized RSP contributions up to their allowable maximums each and every year. But the reality is, Canadians have over $1 trillion in RRSP contribution room. This equates to approximately $41,000 in unused contribution room on average per tax filer.1

Regardless of the situation, B2B Bank's portfolio of RSP loans offers a lending solution to match your clients' needs.

Your client’s scenario: The B2B Bank solution:
They don’t have the necessary funds to make a contribution… Variable rate RSP loans can be amortized for up to 10 years to make payments more affordable for your clients.
They want to maximize this year’s (and/or previous years’) RRSP contribution… Our RSP loans have no loan maximums, so your clients can borrow as much as they need, regardless of how much unused contribution room they have.
They prefer not to use their own savings for their contribution… By taking advantage of our deferral payment option – up to 6 months.2
They’ve decided (at the last minute) to make a contribution... Apply online for an RSP loan and you can provide your clients with a decision within seconds.3 If approved, their loan will be funded typically within one business day of receiving original documentation.

2 Clients can defer their first payment for up to 180 days on all B2B Bank RSP Loans. If a deferral option is selected, the first payment is due on the first payment date after the expiration of the deferral period. The interest accrues from the date of funding and extends the term of the loan by the length of deferral. RRSP contributions cannot be deducted from income in all circumstances. Consult a qualified tax professional for more information.
