Salary Deferral Arrangements
If you have a salary deferral arrangement with an employee and, under the arrangement, you defer payment of a portion of the salary or wages earned in the year to another year, the total salary or wages the employee earned in the year (including the deferred salary or wages ) is subject to the following in the current year (not in the year they are paid):
- source deductions of income tax;
- employee and employer Québec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions;
- employee and employer Québec parental insurance plan (QPIP) premiums;
- the employer contribution to the health services fund;
- the contribution related to labour standards.
The total salary and wages the employee earned in the year (including the deferred salary or wages) must be included in your total payroll used to calculate your health services fund contribution rate, your participation in workforce skills development and, if applicable, your contribution to the Workforce Skills Development and Recognition Fund (WSDRF).
