Amending T5008 slips

After filing your information return, you may notice an error on the T5008 slips. If so, you will have to prepare amended slips to correct the information.

Amending slips over the Internet

To amend a slip over the Internet, change only the information that is incorrect and retain all of the remaining information that was originally submitted. Use summary report type code “A” and slip report type code “A.”

For more information about amending information returns using the Internet, go to Filing Information Returns Electronically.

Amending slips on paper

If you chose to file your amended return on paper, clearly identify the new slips as amended by writing “AMENDED” at the top of each slip. Make sure you fill in all the necessary boxes, including the information that was correct on the original slip. Send two copies of the slips to the recipient.

Send one copy of the amended slips with a letter explaining the reason for the amendment to your tax centre. Do not file an amended T5008 Summary.

Cancelling T5008 slips

A cancelled slip is considered to be the same as an amended slip.

Cancelling slips over the Internet

To cancel a slip over the Internet, do not change any information that was contained on the original slip. Use summary report type code "A" and slip report type code "C".

For more information about cancelling information returns using the Internet, see Filing Information Returns Electronically.

Cancelling slips on paper

If you chose to file your cancellation on paper, clearly identify the new slips as cancelled by writing “CANCELLED” at the top of each slip. Make sure you fill in all the necessary boxes, including the information that was correct on the original slip. Send two copies of the slips to the recipient.

Send one copy of the cancelled slips with a letter explaining the reason for the cancellation to your tax centre. Do not file a cancelled T5008 summary.  

Note

If you notice errors on the slips before you file them with us, you can correct them by preparing new slips and removing any incorrect copies from the information return. If you do not prepare a new slip, initial any changes you make on the slip. Ensure you also correct the T5008 summary.

After filing your information return, you may notice an error on the T5008 slips. If so, you will have to prepare amended slips to correct the information.

Adding T5008 slips

After you file your information return, you may discover that you need to send the CRA additional slips. If you have original slips that were not filed with your information return, file them separately either electronically or on paper.

If you file additional slips on paper, clearly identify the new slips by writing “ADDITIONAL” at the top of each slip. Send one copy of the additional slips to any tax centre.

The CRA also accept additional T5008 original slips in electronic format. For more information, see Filing methods.

Replacing T5008 slips

If you issue T5008 slips to replace copies that were lost or destroyed, do not send the CRA copies of these slips. Clearly identify them as “DUPLICATE” copies and keep a copy for your records.
