Time-saving Excel® slips import

Populate our sample Excel® template with your client's slip recipient data. Then drag and drop it onto the TaxCycle window to import. You can even undo and redo!

SlipSync T4s with T1 returns

Prepare T4 and T4A slips, then publish them to SlipSync. If you're preparing a T1 return for one of the slip recipients, TaxCycle alerts you to import the slip data.

Carry forward from software or XML

Carry forward slips from prior-year ProFile® FX, Cantax® FormMaster, or Taxprep® Forms files. Or, import from an XML file sent to the CRA this year or last year.

Reduced EI calcs in the same file

Prepare T4 slips for both regular and reduced employment insurance calculations in a single file. Create two slips instead of two files.

Info worksheet defaults speed data entry

Set the default pay period, city, province, footnotes, and information boxes on the Info worksheet to automatically populate the slips you create.

Québec RL-1 and RL-2 included

Use TaxCycle T4/T4A to prepare the related Québec RL-1 and RL-2 relevés. Start by preparing your T4 and T4A slips, then scroll down to complete the Québec fields.

Automatically adjust CPP, EI and PPIP

Set default adjustment thresholds, then let TaxCycle automatically adjust CPP, EI and PPIP contributions on T4 slips to the required premium contribution amounts.

Live preview of printed slips

Printed slips show at the bottom of each data entry page. Open a second window and watch it update when you enter data in the main TaxCycle window.

Independent and integrated

A separate module for T4s and T4As allows us to build special features, and lets you set specific options just for T4 and T4A slips. Tight integration with other modules means you can create a T4/T4A file from a T2 return.
