T4 & RL-1

FIRST TOPIC  BACK  PREVIOUS TOPIC  NEXT TOPIC

Province of Employment

eForms will automatically insert the code for the province of employment that has been entered in the General section of the Company Information. You may, of course, override it for a specific employee.

 

Report Code / Relevé Code

eForms handles T4 & RL-1 pairs as a unit; consequently, the RL-1 is the only Revenu Québec form for which the Relevé Code uses the CRA codes ("O" = Original, "A" = Amended and "C" = Cancelled) instead of the Revenu Québec codes ("R" = Original, "A" = Amended and "D" = Cancelled).

 

CPP Pensionable Weeks

Enter the number of CPP/QPP pensionable weeks worked by the recipient in this field; by default, this will be the value entered under Maximum Number of Pensionable Weeks on the Company Information screen. This number will be used to accurately calculate CPP/QPP deducted for the recipient. Data must be entered into this field if you have selected "Adjust based on number of pensionable weeks" as the CPP/QPP Adjustment Option on the Adjustment Options section of the Company Information.

 

CPP/QPP Pensionable Earnings & EI Insurable Earnings

As of January 1, 2012 (for the 2011 taxation year and following) data must be entered for CPP/QPP Pensionable Earnings and EI Insurable Earnings. Values entered for Gross Pay will automatically be entered as CPP/QPP and EI Earnings (or the annual maximum if Gross Pay is larger). You can override the calculated CPP/QPP and EI Earnings by using the override icon, Override, within each field. When overridden, the CPP/QPP and EI Earnings fields will not be changed when Gross Pay is changed.

 

CPP/QPP, EI and PPIP/QPIP Exempt Boxes

Check any combination of the CPP/QPP, EI and PPIP/QPIP Exempt boxes as appropriate for the current employee.

 

Do not check the CPP/QPP exempt box if you entered an amount in T4 boxes 16 (CPP) or 17 (QPP: RL-1 box B) or T4 box 26 (RL-1 box G). Check CPP/QPP exempt only if the earnings were exempt or ineligible for the entire period of employment.
Do not check the EI Exempt box if you entered an amount in T4 box 18 (RL-1 box C) or T4 box 24. Check EI exempt only if the earnings were exempt or ineligible for the entire reporting period of employment.
Do not check the PPIP/QPIP Exempt box if you entered an amount in T4 box 55 (RL-1 box G) or T4 box 56 (RL-1 box I). Check PPIP/QPIP exempt only if the earnings were exempt or ineligible for the entire reporting period of employment.

 

CPP/QPP, EI and PPIP/QPIP Do Not Adjust Boxes

Check one, two or all of these boxes to indicate that this particular slip should not be adjusted when the slips for this company are adjusted. This allows you to adjust some slips while leaving others as entered.

 

Go to T4, T4A or RL-1 Buttons

Clicking on either of these button will display either the T4A slip or RL-1 slip associated with the displayed slip if it exists.

 

Adjust Button

Clicking on this button will adjust the displayed slip. The adjustments will be made based on the adjustment options selected for the current company. These adjustments are not reflected in the corresponding T4 summary, unless all recipient slips have been adjusted using by Printing Adjustment Reports.

 

Net Pay Button

The employee's net pay can be calculated and displayed on the screen as you enter data into the T4 and may prove useful as an audit check. Click the Net Pay button to choose whether or not to display Net Pay and to determine how Net Pay will be calculated.
