Edmonton CPA | Wishing On A Star With Payroll Remittances

Despite the fact that Edmonton CPA has years of experience in dealing with a lot of the Canada payroll tax risks and the Canada revenue agency in and of itself, when they counsel small business, the small businesses still tend to feel as though they can do it on their own.

When ends up happening is the small business owner tends to feel estate of ego in that now they have their own small business and they can do whatever they want. However, when it comes to the Canada revenue agency they do not mess around.

What this means is this means that if you are not just for whole withholding tax from the employees check, there is an employer’s contribution on top of that as well. You’re going have to contribute 7.37% of the Canada pension plan and the employment insurance of the employers money on behalf of the employees. Likewise, you can’t fight the fact that these percentages go up, as recently as it did in 2019.

The employee CPP, the employer CPP, they are legitimately equal then both the employment insurance.

The employers employment insurance is 1.4 times for every one dollar that you deducted from the employees check. What this means, and the mathematics goes that you will be adding $0.40 on every one of the dollars that your employees contribute to the Canada pension plan.

Edmonton CPA also states that there are five components that you must consider in terms of the remittances. These five components are not necessarily in order, and can be considered in any order that you so choose. They are, number one, the Canada pension plan employer tax, the number two Canada pension plan employee tax, number three the employee insurance tax employee insurance tax, number for the employee insurance employer, and then of course do not forget the fifth and final one which is the tax that is being withheld.

As well, consider the fact that two of them aren’t simply paid by the company and is not legitimately deducted off of the employees checks. That is up to you, as the employer.

Due on the 15th day of the 15th month following the date of issue is the time with which you’re going to have to pay all of those remittances, week over week and month over month. And you’re going to have to pay it in cash, says Edmonton CPA. Small organizations can do quarterly and large organizations have to do twice a month. Most small businesses however choose to do it in a monthly basis. That way they can understand better what their month look like in terms of revenue. They can better plan month over month exactly where the money is going go and how they’re going to pay for.

Be careful as the penalty for not paying your remittances on time, is astronomical. It can be up to and in the same breath of and as the credit card interest rate.
