When there are earnings on a particular paycheck that are taxed using different tax methods, the total earnings on one tax method will be used as the base for the Canadian Pension deduction calculation, but no deduction calculates on the earnings on any other tax methods.

1. Create a paysheet for a Canadian employee (Navigation: Payroll for North America > Payroll Processing CAN > Create and Load Paysheets > Create Paysheets).
2. Add earnings to the paysheet taxed on a different basis than the regular earnings (commission or bonus, for example) (Navigation: Payroll for North America > Payroll Processing CAN > Update Paysheets > By Payline).
3. Calculate the payroll (Navigation: Payroll for North America > Payroll Processing CAN > Produce Payroll > Calculate Payroll).
