   Employee’s Withholdings
• Employers are required to withhold
  money from employees for:
• Income Tax
• Canada Pension Plan (CPP)
• Employment Insurance
              Income Tax
• Employers withhold income tax from
  employees.
• The amount depends on the individuals tax
  situation.
• Employee should fill out a TD1.
• There are now two TD1 forms:
• One for the Federal.
• One for the Provincial.
     Employment Insurance
• All employees must contribute to the
  Employment Insurance.
• For our purposes the amount is 2.4% of
  insured wages.
• Insurable wages are more than 15 hours per
  week and earning more than $142.
• Employers match the employee withholdings
  at a rate of 1.4 for most industries.
    Employment Insurance
• The maximum contribution in a year is
  $1,310.40 which is based on $39,000.
• Employers have the responsibility to
  provide an Record of Employment
  (ROE) upon interruption of employment.
• Keep payroll records which documents
  insurable earnings.
     Canada Pension Plan
• Everyone, including self employed
  persons, outside of Quebec must
  contribute to the CPP.
• Employees contribute 3.9% of their
  earnings.
• Employers match these amounts dollar
  for dollar.
      Canada Pension Plan
• Self employed individuals must pay both the
  employers and employees portion.
• The contributon is based on 3.9% of
  pensionable earnings.
• There is also a basic exemption of $3,500.
• Maximum contribution is $1,329.90 based on
  $37,600 in pensionable earnings.
            Calculations
• If an employee had gross wages of
  $1,000 paid biweekly the calculation for
  EI would be:
$1,000 x 2.4% = $24.
• The CPP calculation would be:
[$1000 – ($3,500/26)] x 3.9% = $33.75.
              Calculations
• Notice that the base of $3,500 is divided by
  the number of pay periods in the year and
  then subtracted from gross earnings.
• The result is then multiplied by 3.9%.
• Some systems do not contribute until a
  person has $3,500 in earnings.
• Most systems stop contributions when
  maximums are reached.
             Calculations
• In some cases calculations are necessary to
  be done e.g. commission sales people.
• In most cases companies use payroll tables
  to determine the amount to be paid.
• The book has reproduced the payroll tables
  for CPP, EI, and Tax on pages 567 and 568.
• Note that to use the tax table you need to
  know the employees claim code which is
  determined on the TD1.
            Remittances
• For most employers remittances are
  done once a month.
• The deadline is the 15th day following
  the end of the month.
• So, remittances for June will be due
  July 15th.
   Journal Entries for Payroll
• Assume the following information:
• The gross wages for employees for the
  month are $2,000
• EI withholdings are $200
• CPP withholdings are $300
• Tax withholdings are $500
   Journal Entries for Payroll
• The journal entry to record the payroll is:

Dr: Salary expense            $2,000
  Cr: CPP Payable                         $200
  Cr: EI Payable                          $300
  Cr: Employee’s income
            tax payable                   $500
  Cr: Payroll Payable                     $1,000
     Payroll Journal Entries
• Notice that all withheld amounts go to
  various payable accounts, including
  payroll.
• Many companies have a special bank
  account only for payroll.
• The net amount of pay is transferred to
  that account and the actual payroll
  cheques are then produced.
     Payroll Journal Entries
• The other payroll payable amounts do
  not have to be paid until the 15th of the
  month so they are recorded temporarily
  to these payroll payable accounts.
• It is also necessary to compute the
  employers portion prior to remittance to
  the government.
         Benefits Expense
• The journal entry to record the
  employers portion is:
Dr: Benefits expense            $620
  Cr: CPP Payable                    $200
  Cr: EI Payable ($300 x 1.4)        $420
           Other Payroll
• It is also possible to have other
  deductions which would require
  matching by the employer.
• Examples include company pension
  plan, company health plan, etc.
• Employers may also have to pay
  Workers Compensation Board
  payments.
           Other Payroll
• In the case of Workers Compensation
  Board, no amount is paid by the
  employee.
               Overtime
• The text uses an unusual calculation for
  overtime.
• If an employee worked 45 hours in a
  week where standard hours are 40:
  – 40 regular hours
  – 5 overtime hours
               Overtime
• If overtime is paid at time plus ½ we
  would calculate this as:
• 40 hours x pay rate = regular pay
• 5 overtime hours x pay rate x 11/2 =
  overtime pay.
             Overtime

• In the book the calculation is:
• 45 hours x regular pay = regular
• 5 hours overtime x overtime premium
  (50% x pay rate = overtime.
