Additional Notes

Your T4 Summary must be filed with the CRA by the last day of February of the following year. If you miss the filing deadline, you could be faced with penalties from the CRA.

If you are mailing your forms to the CRA instead of using the XML file generated by QuickBooks Online, you’ll need to send printed versions T4 slips (employer) for all of your employees as well as the T4 Summary. You can find the T4 Summary form on the CRA website.
