Notes for Québec employees:
In order to select “Québec” as the employee’s province of employment, you must first provide a valid Revenu Québec (RQ) number for your company. Without a valid RQ number, “Québec” will be disabled in the drop-down menu of provinces. To provide a valid RQ number for your company: 1. Click on the “Company" tab. 2. Navigate to Company Info > Payroll Details > Revenu Québec Number. 3. Enter a valid 10-digit RQ payroll number. Note: If you enter an invalid RQ number, the field will display in red and you will not be able to click “Save Changes” until you enter a valid RQ number. A valid RQ number consists of 16 characters in the following format: 10 digit business number + RS + 4 digit account number. For example: 0000000000RS0001. 4. Click “Save Changes”. Once you have a valid RQ number in the system, you will be able to select “Québec” as employee’s province of employment by navigating back to the beginning of Step 5 and choosing “Québec” from the drop-down menu. (It will now be enabled.)
If you have a payroll in the system: Once you have entered a valid RQ number and clicked “Save Changes,” the field will become read-only and you will no longer be able to edit this number. You will need to contact Wagepoint support to change your RQ number. The fastest way to get in touch is by submitting a ticket.
