What is a T1204 Summary


T1204 summary

The T1204 Summary (T1204SUM) represents the total of the information reported on all of the T1204 slips you prepared for each recipient for the calendar year.

You can get a Form T1204SUM in a PDF or PDF fillable/saveable format to file on paper.

What to report

  • Report all amounts in Canadian dollars, even if they were paid in another currency. Learn more about the average exchange rates: Exchange rates
  • Fill out a separate T1204 Summary for each of your payroll accounts. The totals you report on your T1204 Summary have to agree with the totals of all amounts you reported on your T1204 slips for that payroll account
  • If you have no amounts to report on a T1204 slip or summary, there is no need to send either form to the CRA
  • Do not change your address using the T1204 Summary. Learn more about making changes: Make changes to your account
