Update your CRA remittance schedule

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will sometimes evaluate the total earnings of a company and re-assign them a new remittance frequency. This typically only happens once a year, at the end of the year. They will notify the company of the updated remittance schedule and it is the company’s responsibility to update the system.

  1. In the navigation menu, go to Settings.
  2. Under Tax settings, click Source deductions.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Under Remittance schedule, click Update.
  5. Select the new remittance schedule assigned by the CRA and enter the effective date of the change.
  6. Click Update.
  7. Click Save on the main page.
