The ON EHT is an employer health tax set up by the Ontario government to help fund health care infrastructure in Ontario.
To help determine how much money to remit to the government, we’ve created a Vendor Remittance Report that tracks your Ontario employees' earnings and generates a ON EHT remittance value. This report has no direct implications for payroll; it only reports your company’s remittances to the government.
This vendor remittance report can be run per pay period or directly before your remittance date. Some clients may wish to run the report more frequently to track their expenses - allowing for appropriate budgeting of the new Health Tax.
The Avanti Best Practice for ON EHT remittances is to use our Vendor Remittance report for EHT. You may wish to set up a benefit code to track the expenses directly to a GL for their finance department.
If you have any questions on the legal requirements of ON EHT remittances, please contact the government body associated with the remittance.
How to create the Vendor Remittance Report
When creating your ON EHT Remittance Report, there are two available files attached at the bottom of this article, one for each payroll threshold. Please only import the one that you anticipate using.
The first is if you anticipate your Ontario payroll to be between $490,000 and $1,200,000 in the current year.
The second is if you anticipate your payroll to be over $1,200,000.
If your payroll is under 490,000 the ON EHT Remittance Report is not required.
Step 1: Navigate to the Vendor Remittance Setup.
By default this can be found in Canadian Payroll >> Installation & Maintenance >> Vendor Remittance Setup.
Step 2: Select Import.
Step 3: Select the file with the appropriate payroll threshold, and import the report. Once the report has been imported, you can open it and adjust any information as required. Visit ADD LINK DURING PUBLISH (Creating a Source Code Group) for more information
