@james1… I fought with this a little back in January, but I think I have it set up where I am comfortable with how it is working for adjustments. The only nag left for me is I don’t want Taxcycle to adjust the CPP downwards if the employee has overpaid CPP based on the formula Gross-3500 x 00495. The only time I would want the software to adjust the CPP downwards is if over the maximum of $2,544.30 for the year. Presumably, this would work with your option 4 provided you could get the tolerances built into that option.
You have already noticed that only option 3 (Adjust to the calculated premium if the difference exceeds) uses those Threshold tolerances. The other options ignore those tolerances. I am using option 3 and it works for me. Whenever I would get a T4 slip that Taxcycle wanted to adjust the CPP downward against my judgement there is a box in the “Filing Section” of the T4 slips called “Ignore Adjustments” and it will leave it alone.
Anyway, I have been using option 3 and Taxcycle and Taxcyle doesn’t try to make those small adjustments you are seeing.
I know the tolerances do not work on option 4. My point is why do they allow tolerances on option 3 but not on option 4. All they need to do is add the same tolerance to option four like the one above and life is good.
I initially used option 3; however, at the time I tried it, it would try to adjust CPP down for part time employees. For instance if I had person that worked for a month and was paid $3500 with CPP deducted, Taxcycle would try to adjust the CPP to zero under option 3. Maybe it does not work like that any longer; however, I do not see the issue with having tolerances for option 4 like option 3.
I guess i can click the do not make adjustments box but that seems to be a make work project in my mind.
That is EXACTLY the problem I was running into, and why I started that topic last month… and yes, it still works like that if you choose option 3. Taxcycle wants to reduce the CPP contributions for those part time employees.
You are absolutely correct, in that if option 4 was available with tolerances, it would solve this issue and I would prefer to select Option 4 over option 3.
