Average Monthly Remittance
The average monthly remittance for a year is determined by dividing the total of the amounts to be remitted as income tax withheld from remuneration paid as an employer or as a payer, QPP contributions, QPIP premiums and the contribution to the health services fund by the number of months in the year (maximum of 12) for which the amounts were remitted.
A corporation's average monthly remittance is equal to:
- the total of the corporation's average monthly remittance and the average monthly remittance of every associated corporation, where the remittance is determined on the basis of the 2019 taxation year;
- the corporation's average monthly remittance, where the remittance is determined on the basis of the 2020 taxation year.
Income tax withheld from an income-averaging annuity for artists is not included in the calculation of the average monthly remittance.
