As an employer in Canada, the CRA requires that you file payroll taxes accurately and on time. Staying up to date with government remittances can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to stay on top of paperwork and calculations. Do you have the correct forms? Which policies have been updated? Here’s what you need to know:
Employers are required to calculate, deduct, and remit the following source deductions each time you issue payroll:
- Canada Pension Plan contributions
- Employment Insurance premiums
- Income tax
- Employer CPP contributions
- Employer EI premiums
As a business, your remittance schedule for payroll deductions is determined by your average monthly withholding amount (AMWA). This is the sum of all the payroll deductions you paid to the CRA in a calendar year, averaged monthly. A two-year history of your AMWA is used to classify you as a new, regular, accelerated, or quarterly remitter.
