Newsletter #6


By now you might have seen your T4 on-line and noticed 4 new boxes in the bottom section.  Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) announced that all Canadian employers must report certain employment payments on the 2020 T4 slip, “Statement of Remuneration Paid”, using new information codes that correlate to defined periods. According to the CRA, this additional information is intended to validate payments made to individuals under the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB) programs, as well as payments made to employers under the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS).

The T4’s new information codes must be used to report employment income and retroactive payments to employees paid in the following time periods:

  • Code 57: Employment income – March 15 to May 9
  • Code 58: Employment income – May 10 to July 4
  • Code 59: Employment income – July 5 to August 29
  • Code 60: Employment income – August 30 to September 26

For more details review the CRA website New T4 Boxes 57- 60.
