Support for Employer Health Tax (EHT)

en français

In Ontario certain companies will need to pay EHT or Employer Health Tax for their employees.  To see if your organization is subject to the EHT, please see

You can have EHT calculations performed automatically for you in Payroll.

To set up EHT go to COMPANY SETTINGS>PAY RULES. If you have employees in Ontario you should see a new tab called “Company Rules” select this and EHT will be there.

To get it up and running, please click ENABLED box and then set your GL code, your EHT account number, your exemption amount (if different than the default) and your remittance frequency.

Click SAVE

Now, once you hit the exemption amount the program will automatically start calculating EHT. To get an EHT report (at the end of your reporting period) Please go to ACTIONS>EHT REMITTANCE REPORT. The report will then be generated for you.

Alternatively, if you wish to see the EHT amount per pay you can use the PAYRUN HISTORY REPORT and select the box to "Show Company Portions" and it will be listed there.  Use the check boxes on the far left to select a group of payruns to add up as needed.  The totals will be at the bottom of the page.

**NOTE Payroll does NOT remit EHT on your behalf
