RL-1 Slip – Canadian Forces Personnel and Police Officers
Canadian Forces personnel and police officers who earned employment income while deployed on a mission abroad can claim a deduction on that income, regardless of the risk score associated with the mission.
The deduction is limited to the maximum remuneration a Lieutenant-Colonel of the Canadian Forces can receive during the mission.
To calculate the deduction, subtract the contribution (pertaining to the remuneration) that the employee paid to an RPP from the gross remuneration attributable to the mission.
You pay the employee $500 in salary or wages for a given pay period (all of which relates to a mission abroad) and you withhold $50 as a contribution to an RPP. In this case, the portion of the remuneration that qualifies for the deduction is $450 ($500 − $50).
For such an employee, enter “A-7” in a blank box of the RL-1 slip (see courtesy translation RL-1-T) for the deduction for Canadian Forces personnel or “A-8” for the deduction for police officers, followed by the amount of the deduction.
