Taxes and non-registered investments Add to ...

Income from non-registered investments is typically taxable in the year it is earned, and the tax treatment depends on whether the investments produce capital gains, dividends or interest income. Should tax implications sway how investors treat their non-registered investments? Only to a point, says Jeff Ray, Assistant Vice President, Mutual Funds and Structured Products at Manulife Investments in Toronto. “Take taxes into account, but don’t let that cloud a good investment decision. ” Once investors have made their investment decision, they should be aware of methods that can help with taxes, he says.

Daylight saving time has ended. It really should go on forever.

Goodbye forever, sun. Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images Early Sunday, our clocks were set back an hour. And many of us were able to enjoy an extra hour of sleep. But the one-time benefit of a little extra sleep does not make up for the fact that there will be much less light in the evening hours. People who work 9 to 5 will, in a few weeks’ time, leave their offices in total darkness. Daylight saving time in the US started as an energy conservation trick during World War I, and became a national standard in the 1960s. But many now feel it has outlived its usefulness.

It has yet to earn itself mainstream popularity, but its necessity as a goal for how we should be progressing makes its definition important. Like so many things in sustainability, I come across many enthusiasts who are trying to promote the practice but may be passing around an incorrect meaning. We all know what the basis of Recycling is: a practice that takes an item and targets it for reuse, returning it back to the cycle of daily contribution to society rather than discarding it to trash.

Can a Nonprofit Organization Have a Savings Account?

by Fraser Sherman Like any other business, your nonprofit shouldn't assume its finances will be just the same this year as last year, or that next year will fit the same pattern. You may find donations drying up if the economy is weak. At the same time, the need for your services might increase. Having money in the bank helps you weather tough times. Less than 30 percent of nonprofits, according to the council, have more than a month's reserves in their rainy-day fund. Your operating reserve can go in a savings account, but it doesn't have to.

Canadian Tire's loan may save bundle | Toronto Star

ByEllen Roseman On Your Side Wed. , Sept. 12, 2007 Canadian Tire is making a splash in the mortgage market with a product that bundles loans and savings together. The retailer's "one-and-only account" is similar to the Manulife One account launched in 1999 – which, in turn, is similar to accounts popular in Australia and Britain. The attraction is that all your short-term cash is applied to the mortgage, even if just for a day or two. This lets you pay off the loan more quickly. Bundled accounts can help if you're self-employed, with income that fluctuates wildly each month.
