1. Reconcile your Payments to Invoices
Reconciliation is the process of associating client payments to corresponding invoice items. This allows you to know exactly which item has been paid for, which is mandatory when generating RL-24’s.
To view unreconciled payments, credit and reimbursements:
For RL-24 eligible items only, access the list of these items via the Reports > RL-24 Tax Credit subtab. This list is available in Step-2
For all unreconciled items, click on the Accounting & Finance > Unreconciled items subtab. Using the Date created column; filter for the most recent transactions. Clicking on the Receipt ID directs you to the payment, where you can link it to the appropriate invoice item(s).
To perform the reconciliation, you can:
Manually reconcile each account individually.
Use the Account Reconciliation tool via Clients > Operations to automatically reconcile items on an oldest to newest basis. We suggest filtering for accounts with transactions dating in 2020.
2. Update SIN's and Client Information
Clients must provide their SIN number to be eligible to receive an RL-24 tax credit.
Information that must be up to date in the client's account:
Child's first and last name;
First and last name of adult(s) who will receive the tax credit;
Social insurance number (SIN) for adult(s) who will receive the tax credit;
Specify if the tax credit is remitted 100% to the 1st or 2nd guardian, or 50/50; and
If applicable, ensure the 2nd guardian's information is within the account.
Export a list of clients with missing SIN numbers by program via Reports > Ad hoc > For this program only - RL-24 Tax Credit. This list is also available in Step-4
