From QB online how do I save t4 and t4 summary in xml to transmit to CRA ?

Hey r.riva,


Tax season is always a busy time of year, but it's almost over! QuickBooks Online's payroll solutions are built to streamline the submission of your forms, and take all the stress out of payroll year-end. Depending on your payroll subscription, you'll have various tools and options available to make this easy. I'll be happy to guide you through this.


QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll is equipped to produce your T4s in XML format, making it easy to file directly to the CRA. It's just a few easy steps to export this from QuickBooks Online:

  1. From the left menu select Employees and then Payroll Tax.
  2. Select Annual Forms under the Forms section.
  3. Select T4 slip (employer).
  4. Choose the period and select View. The T4 summary (employer) opens in a new tab. (Note: It's a good idea to print or save a copy for your records.)
  5. Go back to QuickBooks Online in the previous tab and select Submit. This will export your T4 slips as an XML file and automatically archive a copy for your records in QuickBooks Online.

Advanced Payroll Powered by WagePoint uses powerful automation features to get your through the season without breaking a sweat. As long as auto-file is enabled, year-end forms are automatically submitted to the CRA on your behalf. As the deadline to auto-file has passed, please reach out to our payroll expert team using one of the methods below if you need additional info about the submission of your T4s. They'll be able to take a look into your account to ensure we approach this appropriately.
