Effective 31st March 2016, CRA will accept only ROE XMLs which are of Version 2.0

There are multiple changes to the new XML format, some of the changes are the following.

  • Dates: the format of all dates has been changed from DDMMYYYY to the ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD).
  • Employees Postal Code (B9 – PC): this tag is contained within the Employees Information(B9) and reports the employee’s postal code, which is no longer reported in the Employees Address Line 3 (A3).
  • Total Insurable Earnings (B15B): this box is no longer being reported. CRA calculates this amount based on the data provided in other tags.
  • Reason for Issuing this ROESeparation Code (B16 – CD): a new field has been introduced in the Reason code for issuing a ROE

The details for this can be found in SAP Note : 2206524
