Year End Settings (Payroll Tab)

This screen allows you to enter and modify the settings that are required to perform the year end process. At the end of each calendar year, employers must complete and issue the appropriate form(s) (e.g., T4, T4A, RL-1) to every employee, retiree, officer or other individual to whom they paid remuneration during the year. Employers must also submit copies of the forms (whether via printed or magnetic media), as well as the matching summary, to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Employers must also file T4 and T4A information returns (slips and related summaries) by the last day of February each year.

eNETEmployer assists in this process by providing a facility to create the printed reports and also the electronic files that contains the relevant year-end data.

Internet Filing Requirements

To use the CRA's Internet Filing Transfer (XML) service, your company must meet several requirements:

  1. Your company has both a valid Business Number and a Web Access Code. You can find these items at the top of your personalized T4 summary that you received from the CRA. If you have not received this document or if you have misplaced your Web Access Code or Business Number, you may call the CRA to obtain or replace either of these items.
  2. Your company must have a Transmitter Number. If you have transmitted a magnetic media file in the past, you may use the MM number that the CRA has already assigned to you. If your company is new to transmitting, you may use the number MM000000 (after which you will be issued a new transmitter number that you can use for subsequent transmissions.
  3. The CRA requires that electronic T4s be submitted in the .XML 4.0 format. Therefore, the computer that creates the .XML file must have Microsoft component MSXML 4.0 installed before the file is created. Visit the Microsoft website to download this component if required.
