Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 6 2010 Development update Employment Equity update HRSDC replaced the Employment Equity Computerized Reporting System (EECRS) reporting system with Workplace Equity Information Management System (WEIMS) SAP released changes to the extract file from RPLEAK00 to conform to the new file specifications Prescribed Interest Rate SAP released a note (1414844) in January 2010 with the Federal Government prescribed interest rate. As the rate did not change throughout the year, no subsequent note was delivered. Starting in 2011, SAP will deliver a quarterly note, even if the rate remains unchanged.
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 7 2010 Development update Change to Bonus Tax Calculation (Change #1) In January 2010, CRA added a note to the T4127 guide indicating that if the estimated Annual remuneration of the employee is $5,000 or less the tax is calculated as 15% of the bonus (10% for Quebec. SAP has updated the tax formula to follow this direction from CRA. The change will be delivered with the yearend base HRSP.
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 8 2010 Development update Change to Bonus Tax Calculation In the Bonus tax calculation section of the T4127 guide, there is a formula (Step 2) that is used to calculate Estimated annual earnings A = [(IYTD – FYTD – F2YTD – U1YTD) + (PR × (I – F – F2 – U1)) – F1 – HD]* + (B1 – F4) the guide also indicates that “if there is no current I, use the most recent I” Two problems exits with this CRA guidance. If there is no current “I” actually means if “I” is zero or is less than the usual amount …use most recent “I” CRA have indicated that this is not necessarily the most recent “I” but is the average or usual or typical “I”.
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 9 2010 Development update Change to Bonus Tax Calculation (change #2) If there is no current “I” actually means if “I” is zero or less than usual Currently, SAP provides functionality to configure wage types to be used for estimation of gross in case of missing regular pay for salaried employees. The WT's can be configured in table T51P1 with indicator R3. If the sum of the WT's is zero, the basic pay from IT0008 is used in estimation. As of January 1, 2011 even if the sum of R3 wage types is only a percentage (configurable) of earnings in IT0008, the IT0008 amount can be used in estimation. The constant KTHPE can be configured in T511K to achieve this. For example, if you wish to use IT0008 value for estimation when current earnings are less than 20% of IT0008 earnings, set KTHPE to 0,20.
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 10 2010 Development update Change to Bonus Tax Calculation …use most recent “I” In some cases however, even this value may not be very accurate. For example the most recent 'I' may again be zero or a very small percentage of regular earnings. To overcome the above problem, as of January 1, 2011, provision has been made to use the average year-to-date values instead of the most recent.
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 11 2010 Development update Change to Bonus Tax Calculation (#3) …use most recent “I” CRA provides the below formula for calculation of annual taxable income using the YTD bonus calculation method: A = [(IYTD - FYTD - F2YTD - U1YTD) + (PR × (I - F - F2 - U1)) - F1 - HD]* + (B - F3)** + (B1 - F4)** In the above formula, in case of missing regular pay, the values of I, F, F2 and U1 will be replaced by their respective YTD average values. To enable this, constant KAVGF in table T511K should be set to 1,00. If this new YTD average process is not used (KAVGF flag not set to 1.00) then the existing IT0008 income estimation process will be used
Real Experience. Real Advantage. [ 12 2010 Development update CSST To be released in November via a CLC Changing from Annual remittance to CSST based on estimated earnings to Pay Period remittance to MRQ based on actual earnings Introduction of a new Periodic Payment Rate (blended rate) for employers with multiple rates Post yearend reconciliation of amount paid by using the Periodic Payment Rate and what would have been paid if you used the actual rates. SAP will provide new T511K literals to store the Periodic Payment Rates Additional functionality in KFTAX to calculate CSST New technical wage types Changes to the TPZ-1015.r Changes to be delivered via a CLC in November 2010.
