Remitting Source Deductions and Employer Contributions
You must remit the following to us periodically according to your remittance frequency:
- source deductions of Québec income tax, Québec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions and Québec parental insurance plan (QPIP) premiums;
- your employer QPP contributions, QPIP premiums and contributions to the health services fund.
You must also remit to us, no later than the filing deadline for the RL-1 summary, that is, no later than the last day of February of the year following the calendar year in question:
- your contribution related to labour standards; and
- your contribution to the Workforce Skills Development and Recognition Fund (WSDRF), if applicable.
You must make periodic payments of the occupational health and safety insurance premium, at the same time you pay your source deductions and employer contributions. To make the payments, use the "CNESST" (Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail) box on the remittance slips that we send you.

- The contribution to the health services fund that you are required to pay periodically is calculated on the basis of an estimated contribution rate, unless you are a public-sector employer. At the end of the year, you must determine your actual contribution rate. Any balance payable resulting from the difference between your actual contribution rate and your estimated contribution rate must be paid by the last day of February of the following year.
If you stop making remittances of source deductions and employer contributions during the year, the deadlines for filing your documents vary depending on whether you stopped operating your business or no longer have employees. For more information, see You Stop Making Remittances.
