T4 Reporting

Changes to 2020 T4 Reporting

For the 2020 tax year, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will be introducing additional reporting for the T4 slip, Statement of Remuneration Paid.

Additional reporting requirements will apply to all employers, and will help the CRA validate payments under the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), and the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB).

For the tax year 2020, in addition to reporting employment income in Box 14 or Code 71, the following new other information codes will be required when reporting employment income and retroactive payments:

  • 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

Eligibility criteria for the CEWS, CERB, and CESB is based on employment income for a defined period. The new requirement means employers should report income and any retroactive payments made during these periods.
