Additional Information About Preprogrammed Forms
You can now integrate preprogrammed RL slips into your software to receive data in the boxes of the RL slips. Preprogrammed RL slips (3-7-8-10-14-16-18-21-22-23-25-26-29-30) are available under Documents in the restricted-access subsection for partners of our website.
The main characteristics of preprogrammed RL slips:
- Fields and boxes of the RL slip are programmed to receive data from your software's databases.
- Logos, instructions and the names of boxes and fields cannot be modified.
- There are two copies of each RL slip. Copy 1 is to be returned to Revenu Québec and copy 2 is for the person for whom the RL slip is being produced.
How does it work
Your software must be programmed to enter the information from its databases into the appropriate fields and boxes of the preprogrammed RL slip. Do not modify the name of RL-slip boxes, as they will not change from one year to the other.
Once the preprogrammed RL slips are integrated into your software, you will never have to change them, as any change to the image of an RL slip (box arrangement) will have no effect on the entry of data in the boxes.
Using preprogrammed RL slips when sending an RL-slip XML file to Revenu Québec
If an RL-slip XML file is being filed with Revenu Québec, your software must be able to print out copy 2 of the RL slip (copy for the person for whom the RL slip is being filed). The data from your software's database must be entered in the appropriate fields and boxes of copy 2 of the preprogrammed RL slip.
Using preprogrammed RL slips when filing a paper RL slip with Revenu Québec (when filing 50 or fewer RL slips)
If a paper RL slip is being filed with Revenu Québec, you must make sure that the information from the software's database is entered in the appropriate fields and boxes of copies 1 and 2 of the preprogrammed RL slips. You must also program the two-dimensional barcode that appears on copy 1.
Using preprogrammed RL slips speeds up the process of validating your RL slips in the partners testing environment. After you submit your test cases, you will be able to see the results yourself by viewing the test-case history online, therefore optimizing the process of obtaining an authorization number for the RL slips generated by your software.
