What is a T5018 Summary


T5018 summary

The T5018 Summary (T5018SUM) represents the total of the information reported on all of the T5018 slips you prepared for each recipient for the calendar year.

You can get a Form T5018SUM 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 T5018 Summary for each of your payroll accounts. The totals you report on your T5018 Summary have to agree with the totals of all amounts you reported on your T5018 slips for that payroll account
  • If you have no amounts to report on a T5018 slip or summary, there is no need to send either form to the CRA
  • Do not change your address using the T5018 summary. Learn more about making changes: Make changes to your account

  • A listing or printout of all the summary information, including the total payments to each of the subcontractors, the total number of subcontractors who received these payments, and the signature of an authorized person who may be contacted regarding the information provided
