Guide TP-1015.F-V contains the formulas for calculating source deductions of Québec income tax, Québec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions, Québec parental insurance plan (QPIP) premiums and the employer contribution to the health services fund. These formulas produce results that are more precise than those obtained by using WebRAS or WinRAS.
WinRAS 2018 must be used with the 2018-10 version of the Guide to Filing the RL-1 Slip: Employment and Other Income (RL‑1.G-V), which contains instructions for deducting, remitting and reporting source deductions and employer contributions for 2018. The Ministère des Finances announced a new plan to reduce the health services fund contribution rate for 2018 in information bulletin 2018-7, published on August 15, 2018. Make sure you use the right version of WinRAS 2018 for the pay period for which you are doing your calculations.
