Generate T2200S - Working at Home Due to COVID-19

**If you’re a Cloud client, your environment is updated. On-Prem clients can install the update after February 8th.**

The CRA has new T2200S form for the 2021 tax year for employees claiming home office expenses. Employees are eligible if:

  • They worked from home as a result of COVID-19. This is whether working form home was voluntary or mandatory.

  • They worked at home at least 50% of the time for a period of 4-weeks or longer.

  • You haven’t already reimburse your employees for their expenses.

Additional Information
Employees using the flat rate method of $2 a day up to the maximum of $500 don’t need a T2200S. Only employee calculating their office expenses using the detailed method need to request a T2200S.

An English T2200S will be created for employees that have English selected for Language on the Personal section of the Employee Profile; a French form will be created if French is selected for Language.

By default, this can be found in Tax Slip Processing.

Step 2: In the Output Folder, select where you’d like to save the T2200S.

Step 3: Select Include Employee Name in File Name.

  • If selected, the file name will be T2200S - Tax Year - Last Name First Name Initial-Employee Number.PDF.

  • If deselected, the file name will be T2200S-Tax Year-Employee Number.PDF.

How to Restrict Which Employees Receive a T2200S

You can create employee filters to restrict which employees will get a T2200S. Only employees who match a selection in each of these filters will have a T2200S generated.

You can also create filters based on any of the Employee Profile selections. For more information, skip to How to Use Data Filters, which can be found at the bottom of this article. If you’re making T2200S available for all employees, skip to the How To Complete Part B on Your T2200S section below.

Step 1: Select the filter from one of the following options:

  • Employee: Filter by selecting the employees. Only employees that match the other filters you’ve created are available for selection here.

  • Positions: Filter employees by their primary position.

  • Locations: Filter employees by their location.

  • Work Group: Filter employees by their work group.

  • Pay Group: Filter employees by their pay group.

  • Job Status: Filter employees by their job status.

  • Additional Employee Fields: Filter employees by the additional fields defined on the Profile Field Names tab in Payroll Parameters

  • G/L Segments: Filter employees by their G/L Account segments.

    • To include employees that Group selected for their G/L Option, select the blank segment.

    • To exclude employees that Group selected for their G/L Option, deselect the blank segment.

Step 2: Choose all selections that apply. Employees must match one of the selections for a T2200S to be generated.

T2200S will only be created for employees with one of the selected options.
