The default for Payworks’ clients using Employee Self Service (ESS) this year end is set to paperless. The options available to those clients on their year-end authorization screens are:
To post employee T4s to their ESS accounts, where the employee can print their own tax form off at any time
To choose to print self-sealed forms
Payworks’ clients who utilize ESS already distribute their employees’ pays statements electronically. Going forward, the delivery of their T4s will continue in this method. In Canada, there is no requirement from the government that employees have to receive paper T4s, which means we can provide businesses with an even more secure way of distributing their T4s.
Electronic T4 distribution is an easier and more efficient delivery method for Canadian employers. There is no delivery wait time, there is no need to hand out forms individually to employees, and if a form is lost or misplaced, it can be printed off at the employee’s discretion by simply logging into their ESS account.
The best thing about electronic T4 distribution via ESS is that Payworks clients do not have to manage the delivery of their T4s, making year-end hassle-free and that much less stressful.
