Amending or Canceling Slips

FIRST TOPIC  BACK  PREVIOUS TOPIC  NEXT TOPIC

All versions of eForms let you prepare and submit Amended and Canceled slips to CRA and Revenu Québec; slips that have not already been submitted to CRA or Revenu Québec do not need to be amended or cancelled. CRA and Revenu Québec both require that Original, Amended and Cancelled XML submissions be made independently of each other; Original, Amended and Cancelled XML submissions cannot be combined.

 

To correctly process amended or cancelled slips DO NOT import data for the amended or cancelled slips into eForms; all slips being amended or cancelled must:

 

Already exist within eForms
Have been submitted to CRA or Revenu Québec

 

eForms will not process amended or cancelled Revenu Québec slips if a previous slip does not exist.

 

Amending Submitted Slips

To Amend slips which have already been submitted to CRA or Revenu Québec:

Open the desired slip(s) in eForms; DO NOT import amended data into eForms; ESPECIALLY if amending Revenu Québec forms
Make any necessary changes directly to the data already existing within eForms
oDO NOT change both the recipient name and the recipient's SIN or Business Number with an amended slip
oIf both the recipient name and the recipient's SIN or Business Number are amended, you should cancel the original (incorrect) slip and issue a new original (corrected) slip
DO NOT change sequence numbers on Revenu Québec forms; eForms will correctly update sequence numbers for Revenu Québec forms as necessary
Directly on the slip/s to be amended change the slip status to 'A' to indicate an Amended slip

 

Cancelling Submitted Slips

To Cancel slips which have already been submitted to CRA or Revenu Québec:

Open the desired slip/s; DO NOT import cancelled data into eForms; ESPECIALLY if cancelling Revenu Québec forms
DO NOT make any changes to the data already existing within eForms, data on cancelled slips MUST appear EXACTLY as on the slip originally submitted to CRA or Revenu Québec
DO NOT change sequence numbers on Revenu Québec forms; eForms will correctly update sequence numbers for Revenu Québec forms as necessary
Directly on the slip/s to be cancelled change the slip status to 'C' to indicate a Canceled slip, for all CRA slips and some Revenu Québec slips; most (but not all) Revenu Québec forms indicate a cancelled slip with "D"
