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.
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.
