​What you will learn

This course will equip you with access to excellent reference materials from CRA and EverGreen Explanatory Notes and the latest versions of professional software programs. This valuable resource is updated when changes to the information become available—including changes to legislation, rates used in payroll calculations, and alterations to CRA forms.

Upon graduating, you will also be able to produce a payroll run for any period for a payroll of any level of complexity and understand and calculate all employer remittances for deductions taken at source, while fully understanding the consequences of non-compliance.

Learn more about payroll basics in order to help with expanding my business to handle this part of the bookkeeping cycle.
