Filing Amended, Cancelled or Additional Information

FIRST TOPIC  BACK  PREVIOUS TOPIC  NEXT TOPIC

You may occasionally need to file a return containing Amended, Cancelled or Additional data; please follow the steps below to ensure correct processing of the return. Note: Please backup your original data as changes made to prepare returns containing amended, cancelled or additional information are permanent and cannot be undone.

 

Amended Data

 

Change the status of the slip to "Amended." If you are importing data into eForms, ensure that the REPORTCODE or SLIPSTATUS field contains "A" (for CRA and Revenu Québec returns)
Make the necessary changes to the original data
Process the return; select "Amended" as the status of slips to include only amended slips in the submission

 

Cancelled Data

 

Change the status of the slip to "Cancelled." If you are importing data into eForms, ensure that the REPORTCODE or SLIPSTATUS field contains "C" (for CRA and RL-1 returns) or "D" (for Revenu Québec returns other than the RL-1)
Make no changes to the original data
Process the return; select "Cancelled" as the status of slips to include only cancelled slips in the submission

 

Additional Data

 

Create a new company. The name of the new company must be almost the same as it was on the original submission with a slight difference (such as a period or abbreviation) to allow eForms to distinguish between them (eForms uses the employer name to distinguish between employers)
Add or import the additional slips as required, the status of the additional slips must be "Original." If you are importing data into eForms, ensure that the REPORTCODE or SLIPSTATUS field contains "O" (for CRA and RL-1 returns) or "R" (for Revenu Québec returns other than the RL-1)
Make no changes to the original data
Process the return for the new company; select "Original" as the status of slips to include only original slips in the submission
