E1: 77: Canadian Taxes Based On Timecard Work Tax Area (Doc ID 2423508.1)

Last updated on JULY 16, 2018

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Canadian Payroll - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have employees that usually live and work in one province, let’s say Alberta, and that is the province specified in the employee master.

However, from time to time, we send these employees for a few days of the pay period to a job in Northwest Territories. When that happens, we have during the same pay period time entered for NWT and time entered for Alberta and we are obligated to collect payroll taxes for the work performed in NWT. See link to NWT government site:

When we run payroll for our American employees, we have the possibility to turn on the flag that indicates that the source of the work tax area should be “time entry”.
However, for Canada we do not have a similar feature and the only way, we can get the taxes to calculate correctly is to split time entry into the two work areas and run separated payrolls wand flipping back and forth the tax area in the employees master . This seems a very inefficient way of dealing with this that causes extra work.

Therefore, we would like to see if we can find a solution to this issue
