Real estate can be a very good investment, and it’s one that many Canadians choose because it can be beneficial in terms of high capital and tax advantages. Real estate tends to be of value over time, leaving you with a good long-term investment.
If you own a property in Canada and know about the Canadian tax laws involved with real estate investments, it can be highly beneficial. As the Canadian laws are quite flexible to people who own real estate, no formalities like citizenship or residential certificate are required to buy and own a property in Canada. No one can prohibit you from owning a rental property if you are a non-resident in Canada. But you must make sure to file annual tax returns with the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA).
Property taxes and mortgage, bank loan or line of credit interest are tax-deductible in Canada if the property is an investment property. The deduction is called the capital cost allowance (CCA). Being an investor in real estate business, one must be familiar with the tax implications every time you invest, right from owning the property to renting it and finally putting it up for sale.
