To transfer your account to a corporation you must provide:
written notice that you want to transfer your individual account to a corporation providing your last year participating as an individual and the corporation's:
name and contact information
Participant Identification Number (PIN) if it has an existing AgriInvest account
a legal transfer of the account has taken place under the Income Tax Act or a signed declaration that you filed an election under Section 85 of the Income Tax Act or
a copy of original contract between you and the corporation which lists the account as an asset
If the corporation has an existing AgriInvest account, AAFC will instruct the financial institution that holds your individual account to transfer the funds.
If the corporation does not have an existing AgriInvest account, we will send an Account Initiation Form. The corporation must open a new account at a financial institution. When the account is open, we will instruct the financial institution that holds your individual account to transfer the funds.
a surviving spouse
A deceased participant’s account can only be transferred to a surviving spouse. However, other beneficiaries who inherit most of an estate may use the account history.
An account may be divided into two individual accounts based on the terms of the formal separation agreement.
To divide an account you must provide:
a written request to divide your AgriInvest account, indicating your separating or divorcing spouse's:
name and contact information
social insurance number
Participant Identification Number (PIN) if your spouse has an existing AgriInvest account
a copy of a separation agreement signed by both parties with the signatures witnessed
If your separating or divorcing spouse has an existing AgriInvest account, AAFC will instruct the financial institution that holds your account to transfer the funds.
If your separating or divorcing spouse does not have an existing AgriInvest account, AAFC will send them an Account Initiation Form. They must open a new account at a financial institution. When the account is open, AAFC will instruct the financial institution that holds your account to transfer the funds.
An entity cannot transfer an account to another entity (for example, a corporation to corporation).
Account transfers do not extend your Deposit Notice deadline. You must continue to meet the deposit deadline on any previous Deposit Notices to be eligible for matching government contributions.
Close your account
You can close your account any time. Contact your financial institution to withdraw the balance of funds and close your AgriInvest account.
The Fund 2 portion of the account is taxable in the year the funds are withdrawn. Your financial institution will report the closure to AAFC.
You cannot leave your AgriInvest account open indefinitely if you are no longer participating in the program. AAFC will close your account if:
you do not submit a form reporting sales or purchases of allowable commodities for 2 years in a row or
you operate an entity that dissolves (you must notify AAFC if you dissolve your operation.)
Reopen your account
You can open an AgriInvest account any time by sending AAFC a completed form reporting sales and purchases of allowable commodities. AAFC will send you an Account Initiation Form with your Deposit Notice so you can open a new AgriInvest account at a participating financial institution.
To request a form or for further information call AAFC toll-free at 1-866-367-8506.
