I can put this under wages and salary but this is a different line item on the actual T2125 form? Does it actually make a difference?
Subcontractor fees are included in the Inventory screens in Self-employment section of your return. You can reopen the business section and add the amounts. Choose "Business Summary" from the Self-Employment menu on the left side of your screen and click the option to Edit. On the screen that appears, select Income and Inventory.
At this point, your best option is to include that expense in the "Other Expenses" spot - it's on the same screen as Office Supplies. Salaries & Wages is designed more for actual employees (with payroll deductions from you).
You can change the business type from the self-employment profile:
- From the left side selection, go to the drop-down menu of self-employment.
- Go to the self-employment profile and it will walk you through the business types.
- On the second slide click on edit beside the business summary, change from "professional" to "other type of business".
The software will save your expenses and vehicle information. However, you will have to re-enter the income section since professional income is different from other types of business.
I hope this was helpful
