No CPP taken from employees working 3 hours minimum.

We have had a few employee's that all worked 3 hours or less last year and it appears quickbooks did not take CPP from them, I have checked birthdates, locations and ensured no one was exempt and  I now have a few that are unable to submit taxes,  What is going on ? Any answers in the community ?

Re: No CPP taken from employees working 3 hours minimum.

Hi there, 

 

It's our top priority to ensure that QuickBooks is recording the proper taxes for you and your employees. Don't worry, I'll help clear this up for you. 

 

According to the Government of Canada website (https://bit.ly/2gPSwlo), "every person over the age of 18 who works in Canada outside of Quebec and earns more than a minimum amount ($3,500 per year) must contribute to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP)."

 

If your employee earned less than $3,500 during 2018, they aren't obligated to contribute to the CPP. That's why QuickBooks hasn't deducted it from their pay. 

 

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out. 

Cheers!

The basic annual CPP exemption is $3500.00. If an employee earns less than this amount, no CPP is witheld.
