How to Save Tax with Flow-Through Shares

Flow-Through Limited Partnerships are marketed as income tax shelters by many investment advisors. They are however, investments in junior resource companies, with the associated risk. Today I provide the ABC’s of these often misunderstood tax-assisted investments in a guest blog titled How to Save Tax with Flow-Through Shares I wrote for Jim Yih of the Retire Happy Blog .

The Retire Happy Blog was the winner of the Globe and Mails Canada’s Best Personal Finance Blog contest, a well deserved honour and is definitely a blog worth checking out if you have not already done so.

The blogs posted on The Blunt Bean Counter provide information of a general nature.

Please contact a professional advisor prior to implementing or acting upon any of the information contained in one of the blogs.


  1. Thanks Mark. I'll check it out later today. I'm not sure but I think Jim Yih of the Retire Happy Blog was voted Canada's best financial blogger last year. So that's pretty impressive.

  2. Really appreciate your postings too!
