Pay your taxes

The CRA offers simple, fast and secure online options for businesses to pay their taxes. There are many ways to make a payment:

If you cannot pay an existing debt in full, you may be eligible for a payment agreement. Payment agreement options have been expanded to reflect current realities. The Payment Arrangement Calculator has also been added to My Account and My Business Account. This self-service tool allows you to submit a payment agreement without having to contact the CRA. If the proposed payment agreement does not meet the CRA payment policy, a CRA officer may reach out to complete an acceptable arrangement.

For more information on payment options, go to: Payments for businesses.

File online – if you can

The CRA encourages you to file your income tax and benefit return, your T2 corporation income and GST/HST returns online.

Did you know? Filing a tax return online and signing up for direct deposit can help you get any refund you may be eligible for more quickly.

If you have employees and are filing information returns by mail, you could face a penalty for not filing information returns over the Internet. If you file more than 50 information returns for a calendar year, you must file the returns by Internet file transfer or web forms.

If you have further questions

Meet with a Liaison Officer: The Liaison Officer service is a free service the CRA offers to owners of small businesses and self-employed individuals to help them understand their business tax obligations. A visit from a Liaison Officer is 100% confidential; the information you choose to discuss with a Liaison Officer will not be shared with other areas of the CRA or anyone else. You can request a visit by phone or videoconference here.
