Using Serial (Relevé) Numbers on RL- Slips


Serial number (Relevé numbers) printed on RL-1, RL-2, RL-3, RL-17 and RL-25 slips are assigned sequentially by eForms, from a range supplied to ELM Computer Systems by Revenu Québec, as slips are printed. Depending on the slip to be printed, its status and the answers you provide you will see one or more of the following dialogues:


Serial Number - B


The screen above will be displayed when you are re-printing slips (whether original or amended), Clicking on "Yes" will cause eForms to calculate a new serial number for the slip(s) being printed. Clicking on "No" will cause eForms to print the slip(s) using the serial number already assigned. In the case where no serial number exists, eForms will assign the next serial number in sequence.


Serial Number - A


The dialogue above will be displayed when one or more amended slips are included in the slips to be printed. If you answer "Yes" at this dialogue, all amended slips printed will be assigned a new serial number (as well as any original slip not already assigned a serial number).


The dialogue below will be displayed if amended slips have been printed and you have chosen to re-assign serial numbers to amended slips only:


Serial Number - C


Answering "Yes" at this dialogue will save the serial number for amended slips in the "Previous relevé number" field of the slip's data entry screen.


Many Relevé slips will display two serial numbers:


The top serial number is associated with the magnetic media submission and is assigned when you process the XML output, not when the slips are printed.  Setting the starting serial number does not assign the numbers to the slips.
The bottom serial number is associated with the paper copy and is assigned when the forms are printed


The procedure to ensure that both serial number print correctly on any paper Relevé slips would be to:


Enter the slips into eForms
Check for errors in data entry
Process the electronic filing submission file  (This assigns the top serial number)
Print the slips – this will assign the bottom serial number.  Since the XML processing was done first, both serial numbers will print
