Report shareholder earnings

You must include shareholder earnings in your calculation of wages and salaries when reporting payroll. Dividends, bonuses, and draws are considered part of the shareholders’ earnings when paid as remuneration for activity in the company. Active directors, shareholders, and other corporate officers should report the same gross earnings as they report to the Canada Revenue Agency.
