Media Advisory - The Canadian Payroll Association Available for Budget 2014 Interviews

TORONTO, Feb. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Representatives from The Canadian Payroll Association are available to provide commentary on payroll-relevant measures announced in the 2014 Federal Budget. The Association's regulatory compliance knowledge covers statutory payroll remittances, employee taxable benefits, electronic T4s and other payroll-related administration.

Canada's 1.5 million employers annually produce more than 26 million T4 slips, nearly 10 million T4A's and nearly 7 million RL -1's. They also annually pay $860 billion in wages and taxable benefits, $268 billion in statutory remittances to the federal and provincial governments and $94 billion in health and retirement benefits, while complying with more than 190 federal and provincial regulatory requirements.

The Canadian Payroll Association has been advocating for more efficient payroll legislative processes for Canadian employers since 1978. The Association's advocacy and education programs provide the legislative compliance content used in the payroll processing and remitting systems of over five hundred thousand small, medium and large employers.  The Canadian Payroll Association's 18,500 members include 90 of Canada's top 100 companies, as well as Canada's payroll service and software providers. Canadian organizations seek and value the expertise of Canadian Payroll Association members to be compliant and contribute to their goals.
