The new ROE process in QuickBooks Online Payroll allows you to generate an ROE, download it as a .BLK file, and upload the file to Service Canada.
QuickBooks Payroll will guide you through ROE generation, ensuring the same level of validation as ROE Web. The benefit of having this process in QBP is that the product will help identify any issues in the form so you can correct before submitting. QuickBooks error identification is based on information provided by Service Canada.
If you wish to review and understand that information, Service Canada has a thorough block-by-block explanation of all ROE fields available here.
If an error is displayed while completing your ROE, you will need to close the ROE submission and go back into the product to fix the error. We have listed the necessary walkthroughs by ROE Block in order to guide you through error correction.
