Remit deductions and contributions to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

As an employer, you must regularly report and remit your payroll deductions and contributions to the Canada Revenue agency (CRA).

To report the amounts, file a PD7a or PD7A-RB/PD7A(TM): Statement of Account for Current Source Deductions. Use the worksheet in QuickBooks Online 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 will notify you if your remittance frequency changes.

REMITTER TYPE FORM Remittance dates
New or regular remitter (monthly) PD7A On or before the 15th day of the month after the month you paid your employees.
Quarterly remitter PD7A On or before the 15th day of the month immediately following the end of each quarter:
  • January to March
  • April to June
  • July to September
  • October to December
Accelerated remitter - threshold 1 PD7A-RB / PD7A(TM) For wages you pay in the first 15 days of the month, remit your deductions and contributions by the 25th day of the same month.
