Filing more than five T4/T4A slips? You now need to file electronically



We know, we know - another new requirement for payroll year-end processing?

Fear not! As always: with Payworks, you’re not alone.

If you’ve been thinking about outsourcing some of your workforce management to-do list, this new rule might be just the nudge you need to invest in yourself and your business. Read on for what’s changing… and how we can help.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)’s new rule: if you’re filing more than five T4/T4A slips, you must now file them electronically

In past years, businesses with less than 50 slips had the option of choosing to file year-end either manually or electronically. However, this choice is now only available to businesses filing five slips or less.

Those with more than five slips must now file electronically, and will be fined if they don’t comply. Yikes!
