A vendor remittance will need to be set up for each business number that qualifies for the maximum temporary wage subsidy. You will need to use this remittance for the remainder of 2020 instead of the Receiver General.
If you are tracking remittances, all payments to date should be inserted into the Vouchers on this Vendor Remittance.
Once the vendor remittance is setup, the following columns will be visible in addition to the standard Vendor Remittance columns on the Vendor Remittance:
- Tax (Before Subsidy)
- Subsidy Carried Fwd
- Subsidy Available
- Total Subsidy Avail
- Subsidy Used
- Unused Subsidy
- Tax (Less Subsidy)
To set up the Vendor Remittance, the following steps will need to be completed:
- Import the Vendor Remittance Setup
- Review the Dates
- Filter by Business Number
