In a September 20 article in Journal Les affaires, Luc Lacombe, Tax Partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, advises companies on the retirement plan to adopt for their employees.

Since, July 1, 2014, Quebec has begun the gradual implementation of voluntary retirement savings plans (VRSP). Ultimately, businesses with at least five employees who do not offer any other type of savings plan will have the VRSP imposed on them. Before the deadline, there is still time for entrepreneurs to analyze the options available to them and determine the plan most appropriate to their situation.
