Business -> Payroll taxes - deductions and automobile taxable benefits

Calculating Payroll Tax Deductions and Automobile Taxable Benefits

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has a Payroll Deductions Online Calculator (PDOC) which is free of charge.

CRA also has the Automobile Benefits Online Calculator, which calculates the appropriate automobile taxable benefit amount to be included in an employee's income when the employee utilizes a vehicle leased or owned by the employer.

If you prefer to calculate deductions manually, you can get instructions and the payroll deduction tables from the CRA web page on Calculating deductions.

Because payroll deduction rates often change semi-annually, you should get on the CRA electronic mailing list service for payroll deductions, so you can keep up to date when new rates are available.

For CRA information on taxable benefits, see T4130 Employers' Guide - Taxable Benefits and Allowances, as well as the Benefits Chart, which shows the types of benefits for which CPP and EI must be deducted, and which benefits require GST or HST to be included in the taxable benefit amount.  It also shows the appropriate codes to go on a T4 slip.
