Changes in CRA PD7A Format

The PD7A is a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) payroll remittance form and Statement of Account. On it, you can report EI premiums, CPP contributions, and federal income tax withheld from your employee’s pay, as well as view current balances on your CRA Business Account.

Starting in May 2016, Canada Revenue Agency began sending new, simple, and easy to read PD7A Statements. The re-designed statement of account will have the most important information on the first page, set out in a clear and simple format. This makes it easier for you to understand your payroll obligations.

  • The first page will display the most important information – remitter type, due dates, and year-to-date remittance account balance.
  • The remittance account transactions and arrears account transactions will be separated in table format on the second page, followed by explanations as needed.
  • Additional CRA services you may be interested in are highlighted. This includes online services, Direct Deposit, My Business Account, and operator-assisted relay services to help persons with hearing or visual impairments.
