Restaurants Canada will hold a workshop called “Rules for Tips & Grats: What employees and employers must know” on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 1 p.m. EST.

The association has partnered with Atlas, a hospitality technology company, to introduce Atlas Direct Tips, which automates tip division, distribution and compliance so that employers and employees can be exempt from CPP and EI contributions on the tips they generate.

Tip division, distribution, and taxation are common pain points for hospitality operators. Mismanagement of tips can cost you more than $30,000 in tax liability for every $1 million in sales.

Operators can learn about Atlas Direct Tips and how it can automate tip division, distribution and compliance for any type of operation.


Additionally, you’ll gain insights from James Rhodes of Taxation Lawyers, a tax expert with extensive experience in guiding hospitality businesses through the intricacies of tipping legislation.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn the difference between Controlled and Direct Tips
  • See how Direct Tips allows employers and employees to be exempt from CPP and EI on tips
  • Learn about federal and provincial laws for employers and employees
  • See how an automated tip division and distribution can save hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars
