Preparing for Year End - Canadian Payrolls

Taught by a leading Canadian payroll expert, this seminar provides guidelines to meet the challenges of Canadian year-end processing, from closing the current year to what is required in the next year to avoid cross-border noncompliance penalties.

This course will include a combination of both live and on demand learning covering legislative updates, box-by-box reconciliation and a reconciliation webinar.
