Tax News: CRA introduces new website for business access
February 29, 2012
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is making it easier for businesses to do business with the tax man. It has launched a one-stop shop for managing your tax information at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/bsnssnln/menu-eng.html.
This single Web page gives you options to file, for example, GST/HST returns, T2s, T4s, T1s; to request a web access code, direct deposit, transfer payments, and more; to make payments; to make calculations such as automobile expenses and payroll deductions. You can also review and register — all in an easy-to-use format. Just select your task from the list and the CRA will direct you to the appropriate service.
