You have to complete a T5 Summary if you prepare one or more T5 slips. The T5 Summary records the total of the amounts you reported on all the related T5 slips. If you file multiple slips for a business account, only one summary is required for the entire account.
Do not send a summary without T5 slips or a summary without amounts to report.
