How do I get CSST to calculate for Quebec payroll?

For users of Quickbooks online Canada -  located in Quebec.

QBO does not support the calculation of the CNSST - 

I was given wrong information from QBO tech support - for a procedure to have QBO calculate the CNSST - however their solution caused me problems with my year end Releve 1 - documents -  in the sense that the CNSST amount was showing up on Box J -  (which is only for collective group insurance). 

After much delay and frustration with QBO tech support -  I have to produce my 2016 releve 1 manually to adjust for the error on Box J.

Do not use QBO to calculate the CNSST -  It does not show up in the monthly remittance forms -    The safest way is to manually calculate the CNSST - and set up the liability - via a journal entry - or manually track it and then expense the payment - 

For the payment of the deductions at source -   you can produce the QBO report -  and then add in the CNSST amount -   you have to be a little creative how to show the payment in QBO -  (all depending on your skill level)

For 2017 QBO tech support tells me they can adjust the pays that I have processed till now (feb 2017) - and remove the CNSST contributions made by the employer -   in the hopes that my 2017 year end releve 1 papers will be correct -   Let's hope so.

Hope this helps others in la belle province.

Hey Jimmy I had the same problem, I produce my RL1 manually. But it also have an impact on the T4... the Employee Income deduct the CNESST (that was configured as a Health insurance Liability....)

How do I get CSST to calculate for Quebec payroll?

I have found a way to calculate CSST by creating a Product/Service. In the Product and Service, you enter your rate.  I produce a CSST remittance each month, I then create an expense report, enter the dollars values (salary) and can easily track how much I owe.  Works for me.

Pour les T4 et RL1,  je mets à zéro la contribution dans la fiche employé, génère tous mes documents, les archive et remets le % de contribution.  Fonctionne bien s'il y a peu d'employé.
