Pay by wire transfer for non-residents

Non-residents who do not have a Canadian bank account can make payments to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by wire transfer.

See Chart of available payment methods to view which payments can be made by wire transfer.

Wire transfers for submitting your non-resident GST/HST security deposit are not available at this time.

What you need to know

All wire transfers must be in Canadian dollars.

The Bank of Nova Scotia does not deduct any fees before forwarding the payment to the Canada Revenue Agency. Your financial institution may have standard charges that apply to wire transfer payments. Make sure that your financial institution does not deduct the wire transfer fee from the total payment amount due as this will result in an underpayment.
