We are located in Ontario.
We have an employee living and working from home, in Quebec.
Do we have to submit payroll taxes to Revenu Quebec?
Hi there, @aaivalis. I can share with you some information about multistate payroll in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Once your employee has different work and location address, QBO Payroll will automatically adjust any required tax agencies and remind you to pay that tax agency if applicable. However, it's best to reach out to these provinces (Quebec and Ontario) as they can give you insights on where you need to file or submit your taxes and forms and which taxes apply to your specific situation.
When you're ready to file and pay your taxes, use this link as your reference: Pay and file payroll taxes online.
Let me know if you have any other follow-up questions while handling your payroll taxes in QBO. I'm always here to help. Have a good one!
Hi, the better answer is to ask where the employee reports to?
As per CRA's examples:
- If your head office is in Ontario but your employee must report to your place of business in Manitoba - then use Manitoba tax tables
- If your employee lives in Quebec but must report to your place of business in Ontario - then use Ontario tax tables
- If your employee works from Alberta and sometimes reports to your Alberta office, but you pay them from Ontario - use Alberta tax tables
- If your employee does not have to report to any of your offices but you pay them from Ontario - then use Ontario tax tables
The employee does not need to reporting of our office in Ontario, and yes, the payroll is run from Ontario.
So, I will assume then that there are no deductions for Quebec, just Ontario.
Yes, as long as the correct information is entered in the employees profile, it will prompt one to pay the applicable taxes. But there is a grey area in there because how does QBO know whether the employee reports to our office or works from home?
