1 Only Canadian residents, who are over 18 years of age and have a valid Social Insurance Number, can make contributions to a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). The age of majority is 19 for residents of Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut, which may delay the opening of a TFSA. However, the accumulation of contribution room will start at age 18. Annual contributions to TFSAs are subject to specific limits. Generally, the maximum contribution room for a year is equal to the total of unused TFSA contribution room from previous years, distributions (withdrawals) from TFSAs made in previous years and the TFSA dollar limit for the year in question. As of 2016, the annual TFSA dollar limit is $5,500 (previous annual limits were $5,000 for 2009 to 2012, $5,500 for 2013 to 2014, and $10,000 for 2015). The maximum annual contribution applies to all of your TFSAs held with HSBC or any other financial institution. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will track your contribution room. The CRA reports this amount to individuals through the “My Account” function on the CRA web site (www.cra.gc.ca/myaccount). Provided that contribution limits are not exceeded and contributions are made while the account holder is a resident of Canada, income earned in a TFSA is generally not subject to Canadian taxes. Taxes of other countries may apply. Excess contributions to your TFSA are subject to taxes, interest and penalties. Unlike an RRSP, any money you contribute to a TFSA will not itself be tax-deductible.

2 You can access your principal on or before 89 days, however, 0% interest will be paid.
