Event Details

Employer-sponsored savings plans such as Registered Pension Plans (RPP) and Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP) provide employees with an automatic way to save for retirement while benefiting from tax breaks. Employees who participate in these programs essentially receive free money as their employers offer matching contributions.

It is crucial to both employers and employees that this is administered accurately. To maintain the tax-deferred savings status of an employer-sponsored plan, it is essential that both federal and provincial legislation be followed. If not followed, it could result in under or over contributions.

Canadian Pensions and Retirement Plans: Payroll's Responsibility demonstrates the important role ayroll professionals play in the administration of employer-sponsored plans. Our expert instructors will show you how to administer employee contributions through payroll deductions, monitor contribution limits, correct errors, exceptions, year-end reporting, and much more. The benefits of these savings plans go beyond just administration, as payroll's efforts play an important role in the current and future financial well-being of all employees.
