I have a part time employee who works full time elsewhere. He doesn't want me to take CPP and E.I. off his pay. Can I do that and if so how?

I have a part time employee who works full time elsewhere. He doesn't want me to take CPP and E.I. off his pay. Can I do that and if so how?

HI there bloomfield-const,

 

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community. I'm glad you've joined us here and that you've chosen QuickBooks Online with Payroll to manage your business' books and pay your employees. Having the ability to work on your books from anywhere you have an internet connection is awesome! It's important that you're familiar with the deductions you should be applying to your employee's pay cheque. Let me point you in the right direction.

 

According to the Government's of Canada's website, EI and CPP are required to be deducted from your employee's pay up to an annual maximum. This maximum differs each year and applies to each job the employee holds with different employers. Since your employee has two jobs, both you and their other employee are required to deduct EI and CPP up to the annual maximum for this year. If the maximum has been reached at their other job, they are still required to pay in for their second job. You can learn more on this by visiting the pages below:

 

 

If after further research you conclude that you won't need to deduct EI and CPP from this employee, you'll need to mark them as exempt. Here's how:

 

  1. Navigate to the Payroll or Employees tab from the left.
  2. Select the employee you need to edit.
  3. Select the Edit pencil next to Pay.
  4. Select the Edit pencil next to Section #1.
  5. Select Tax exemptions.
  6. Check the boxes next to Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Employment Insurance (EI).
  7. Select Done

 

I'm confident that you'll have this sorted out in no time. Enjoy your week!
