If you are filing electronically, do not send us a paper copy of the slips or summary. For more information, go to Filing Information Returns Electronically.
If you are filing on paper, use the T4A Summary, Summary of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income, to report the totals of the amounts that you reported on the T4A slips. Send the original T4A summary and the related slips to the Ottawa Technology Centre.
If the total number of T4A slips you file is more than 50 slips for the same calendar year, you have to file them over the Internet.
Do not send us a summary with no T4A slips or a summary with no amounts to report.
You cannot change your address using the summary return. To change your address, do one of the following:
- if you are a business owner, go to My Business Account;
- if you are an authorized representative or employee, go to Representatives a Client; or
- if you prefer, you can contact your tax centre.
Filling out the T4A Summary
For detailed completion instructions, go to Detailed T4A Summary instructions.
Report amounts in Canadian dollars and cents, even if they were paid in another currency. To get the average exchange rates, go to What are the average exchange rates?
Fill out a separate T4A Summary for each of your payroll accounts. The totals you report on your T4A Summary have to agree with the totals you report on your T4A slips. Errors or omissions can cause unnecessary processing delays
