Collage HR's Year-end Payroll Checklist

Table of Contents

After meeting with thousands of Canadian businesses, we know that year-end payroll processing can be extremely daunting.

On top of your normal day-to-day responsibilities, you’re now responsible for preparing an accurate set of payroll documents for your company on a strict government-imposed timeline. Any mistake made in your submission can directly impact the personal taxes of every person on your team or open up the possibility of audits, fines, and more paperwork.

The larger your company grows, the earlier you need to start preparations. For every remote employee or contractor from a different province, there’s a unique set of provincial tax regulations you’ll need to learn, compile and submit.

Even though payroll year-end happens every year, most companies lack systems to manage year-end efficiently. That’s why Laine, our payroll team manager created a checklist for payroll professionals looking for guidance on how to wrap up their year-end as painlessly as possible.
