Common Buttons

Visit the Button Descriptions help page to view detailed descriptions of every button that appears on your screen (whether in the Button Bar at the top of the table, or in the table itself). Note: If a button's text appears in a Grey color, either the command is not applicable to the current page, or its function has already been applied (e.g. some items can only be added once, therefore the New button will be unavailable on certain screens after it is used).

Sample command buttons

Context-Specific Buttons (Unique to This Screen)

New - Use this button to create a manual Relevé1 and corresponding T4 for the year that is selected in the drop-down list to the right of this button. Manually created Relevé1 forms are useful when a given employee has not already had one generated for them by the program (Relevé1's are generated automatically for Quebec employees when you choose the Generate T4's button on the Edit T4s screen). To avoid generating all new T4's for all employees in the payroll, you would simply use the New button on this screen to add a single Relevé1 record.

Note: Deleting a manually created Relevé1 record will also remove its corresponding T4 record (shown on the Edit T4's screen).



The following section displays help for the various cells and columns shown in the main table on this screen. If you see a help description on this page for a column that does not appear on your screen, you can add the additional column to your view by using the Customize option under the Views button (located at the left side of the screen just above the main table). Refer to the Customize View help page for more help on this feature.


Additional Address Info

Use this cell to enter additional address information that may be useful. This could include complete delivery designations or multi-unit indicators such as STE 208 (Suite 208), APT 33 (Apartment 33), etc., when applicable.

Address

Use this cell to enter the physical address (where applicable) at which the employee resides. The address can be entered as one entity (e.g. 698 South Street or Suite 3 - 600 South Street).

Box 16 through 52

Use the fields in this section to enter the appropriate amounts for each Relevé1-related item. These boxes correspond to the boxes that would appear on the employees actual printed form. Please visit the CRA website for complete details on each of these boxes.

Box A through W

Use the fields in this section to enter the appropriate amounts for each Relevé1-related item. These boxes correspond to the boxes that would appear on the employees actual printed form. Please visit the CRA website for complete details on each of these boxes.

City

Use this cell to enter the city in which the employee resides. This is typically the city shown on their mailing address, for T4/T4A and documentation purposes.

Code (Case O)

Use this cell to enter the code for other income that cannot be reported elsewhere on the RL-1 slip. Enter the appropriate alphabetic code in the cell to indicate the income type, then enter the actual income amount in the O-Autres revenus cell.

Code du Relevé

Use this cell to specify if the Relevé1 is original, amended or cancelled. The three allowable codes are: "R" (for an original RL-1 slip), "A" (for an amended slip) and "D" (for a cancelled slip).

Employee Number

Use this cell to enter the unique number that identifies the employee in this payroll. Alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) may be used. e.g. 001, or MGM001.

Employee Province

Use this cell to specify the employee's Canadian province (or U.S. state) of residence.

Employment Code

Use this cell to enter the Employment Code (Relevé1 Box 29) if the employee falls into one of the special job categories, otherwise it may be left blank. Note: Box 29 applies only to a few specific occupations, e.g. placement or employment agency workers, taxi drivers or drivers of other passenger-carrying vehicles, barbers or hairdressers, or fishers (self-employed). Visit the CRA website to learn more about current employment codes.

Exempt CPP/QPP

Check this box if this employee is exempt from paying CPP/QPP. eNETEmployer will automatically exempt employees who are under the age of 18 and who are over the age of 70. If an employee is receiving CPP/QPP benefits, they must be exempt from any further CPP/QPP deductions regardless of their age.

Exempt EI

Check this box if this employee is exempt from Employment Insurance (E.I.) premiums. For example, a shareholder who owns 45% of a company would be exempt from paying E.I. premiums. Another example would be family members or employees with a special status (but these would require a ruling from the CRA).

Exempt PPIP

Check this box if this employee is exempt from Provincial Parental Insurance Plan (PPIP) - sometimes refered to as Quebec Parental Insurance Plan or QPIP. Currently, only Quebec uses this deduction so it is only necessary to consider this checkbox if the employees tax province is set to Quebec.

First Name

Use this cell to enter the employee's first name (also referred to "given name" or "personal name"). For example, John Smith's given name is "John". The cell supports special characters - e.g. María-Jose or Günther.

Last Name

Use this cell to enter the employee's surname (also referred to "family name or "last name"). For example, John Smith's surname would be entered as Smith. You can also enter surname prefixes for employee names that require one. For example, John Van Houton's surname would be entered as Van Houten. The cell also support special characters - e.g. O'Leary or Elkjærd.

Last Year

This undeditable cell indicates if the Relevé1 was generated for the previous year. The two available states are Yes (the Relevé1 was generated for the previous year) or No (the Relevé1 was generated for a year that was earlier than the previous year). This option is provided for sorting purposes so that you can easily view many Relevé1's by their year, as opposed to scrolling through many rows of historical Relevé1's.

For example, if you have entered the year 2016 and you have completed the 2015 year-end process for your company of 100 Quebec employees, 100 Relevé1's will appear in the table. One year later, the year end process will generate another 100 Relevé1's and the list size will increase accordingly. You could then use the Sort feature to arrange your Relevé1 display using the Last Year column and easily view the previous year's Relevé1's at the top of the list.

Manually Added

Check this box if the Relevé1 was manually added for the employee (i.e. it was not created via the Generate T4's button in the Edit T4s screen's button bar). This is for administrative purposes only and can be useful if you want to differentiate from Relevé1's that have been generated by the program, vs. those who were created via manual data entry.

No du dernier relevé transmis

If you are submitting an amended slip, use this cell to enter the number of the last slip that was filed.

Numero de référence (facultatif)

Use this cell to enter an reference number that you wish to include as an additional means of identifying the employee. This cell is optional.

Payer's Account Number

Use this cell to enter the company's 15-character payroll program account number.

Province of Employment

Use this cell to enter employee's province of employment. Depending on the nature of the employee's job, this may differ from the company's province of residence.

Montants complémentaires 1-4

Use these cells to enter dollar amounts that relate to special employment income, e.g. employment commissions, taxable allowances and benefits, deductible amounts and other entries. Each entry you make must include a corresponding entry in its matching Renseignements complémentaires column. For example, if you enter $500 in the Montants Renseignements complémentaires 2 cell for income the employee has received under a profit-sharing plan, the corresponding Renseignements complémentaires 2 cell must have the D-2 option selected.

Renseignements complémentaires 1-4

Use the fields in this section to specify the codes that relate to special employment income. Each code you choose must include a dollar amount in its matching Montants complémentaires column. For example, if you specify the D-2 option in the Renseignements complémentaires 2 cell (for income the employee has received under a profit-sharing plan), the Montants complémentaires 2 cell must also have the corresponding dollar amount defined.

Social insurance number

Use this cell to enter the employee's Social Insurance Number (SIN). This number is validated and must adhere to the required 9-digit format. If this cell is left blank (e.g. in a case where the employee has not yet been issued a SIN), the program will issue a warning message, but will allow you to continue. If an employee does not provide a SIN, employers must prove that they have made a reasonable effort to collect it, such as making a written request to obtain the SIN. While waiting to receive your employee’s SIN, you must continue to deduct remit and report deductions for the employee.

Transmitter Postal Code

Use this cell to specify the company's Postal Code, based on their mailing address. The required format is two groups of three characters each, starting with a letter and alternating with a number (e.g. R2R 2R2).

View Relevé1

View Relevé1 - This button allows you to create the Relevé1 so that you can review its details for accuracy. When you select the button, the program calculates the data and the results are then presented in a PDF file. Depending on your browser settings, any of the following three may occur; 1) the PDF file may open in a window for you to view, 2) the file may be sent to your Downloads folder where you can access it for viewing, 3) you may be presented with a window that will prompt you where to save the file.

VOID

This cell is used to specify whether the Relevé1 should be canceled or retained. Editing the cell will display a checkbox where you can specify the two available options: Yes (the Relevé1 is valid and will be retained) or No (the Relevé1 is considered void and will be canceled).

Year

This cell displays year on which the current Relevé1 is based. This year cannot be edited and is determined at the time the Relevé1 is created.
