As an employer, you must regularly report and remit your payroll deductions and contributions to the Canada Revenue agency (CRA) or Revenu Québec based on the employee's work location.
To report the amounts, file a PD7A or PD7A-RB/PD7A(TM): Statement of Account for Current Source Deductions. Use the worksheet in QuickBooks Payroll to fill in your PD7A amounts online or on the forms sent to you by the CRA.
If you have employees who work in Québec, you must also remit deductions and contributions to Revenu Québec.
What is my remittance frequency?
If you are a new employer, remit your deductions and contributions monthly. The CRA/RQ will notify you if your remittance frequency changes.
