Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Click Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) to see whether the measures adopted by Revenu Québec apply to the information on this page.

The tip allocation rate for employees is equal to one of the following rates, as applicable:

  • 8%; or
  • the rate we determined after receiving form TP-42.15-V, Request for a Reduction in the Allocation Rate, which you or your employees sent us.

Reduction in the allocation rate

As an employer, you can request a reduction in the allocation rate if your employees' tips are often less than 8%. While it is generally your responsibility to make the request, if you refuse to do so, the employees of a regulated establishment can file it under certain conditions, provided a majority of the employees or a majority of the employees who make a particular category of sales (such as bartenders) agree that the 8% rate is too high.

For more information, see form TP-42.15-V.
