WHETHER IT’S A PLAN FOR HUNDREDS OF EMPLOYEES OR JUST A FEW, THERE ARE OPTIONS THAT COULD WORK FOR YOU.
That includes options based on shared (business and employee) contributions, contributions based on employee performance, and employee-only contributions. Business plans allow for total flexibility in terms of how much – or little – is to be contributed by both employer and employee.
WHICH BUSINESS PLAN FITS YOUR BUSINESS?

PERFORMANCE PENSION PLAN

Flexible Contributions & Transfer Options
There is no minimum contribution or concrete saving schedule; employers and/or employees can adjust their savings plan as required, even if that means contributing nothing. Contributions can be paused or changed at your will with no fee.
Up to $7,200* can be deposited per employee per year (assuming they have available RRSP room), and member employees can transfer up to $10,000 per calendar year from an existing RRSP, RRIF or unlocked RPP. Contributions can be made in lump sums or through automated payments.
*Eligible contributions belong to the employee and are locked in subject to SPP legislation and regulations.
Tax Implications for Your Business Are Clear and Simple
Employer contributions are reported as salary expenses. This must be included as a taxable benefit on the employee’s T4. Only CPP is paid on the taxable benefit.
No Contracts or Obligations
Because there are no contracts or other obligations/limitations, employees are free to join or leave the employer plan at any time without penalty – as is your business. Employee accounts remain locked-in according to SPP’s Act and regulations.
Automated Remittance Options
Employers can decide, with their employees, when contributions will be submitted to SPP. Regular contributions can be taken from payroll and submitted to SPP monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or when it best suits the company.
Saskatchewan Pension Plan easily integrates with some payroll providers, including Ceridian. Monthly and semi-monthly pre-authorized contributions can also be set up to withdraw from a business bank account or credit card.
Anticipation of Employee Life Changes
When an employee experiences changes such as a location move, divorce, birth of a child, or untimely death, the Saskatchewan Pension Plan makes it easy for plans to be adjusted through dedicated Member Services. If an employee leaves your organization, simply stop employer contributions and the employees have a personal plan that follows them.
