What are payroll deadlines?
Payroll deadlines: Payroll deadlines in Canada are specific dates set by federal and provincial/territorial authorities for employers to process employee payroll, remit taxes and deductions, and submit required reports. These deadlines ensure that employees are paid accurately and on time while complying with tax and labour regulations. Key deadlines include payroll processing, remittances of income tax, Canada Pension Plan (CPP), and Employment Insurance (EI) contributions, issuing T4 slips to employees by the end of February, and submitting T4 summaries to tax authorities. Adhering to these deadlines is crucial to avoid penalties and maintain payroll compliance.
