CRA BizApp is available 21 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information, see Hours of service.
What can you do with CRA BizApp
You can view and pay your GST/HST and corporation income tax instalments, payroll remittances, and outstanding balances. You can also view account transactions, submit nil remittances, see your expected GST/HST returns, and view the status of filed GST/HST, payroll, and corporation income tax returns.
How to access these services
There are two ways to get access:
- You can log in with a Sign-In Partner, using the same sign-in information you use for other online services (for example, online banking). For more information, go to Sign-In Partners Help and FAQs.
- By using your CRA user ID and password and your business number. If you do not have a CRA user ID and password, go to Registration process to access the CRA login services for step-by-step instructions.
If you are a registered user of any of the CRA’s secure web apps or portals, you can access CRA BizApp right away using the same CRA user ID and password or Sign-In Partner information.
Who can use the CRA BizApp
Owners, as well as partners, directors, and officers of a business can use CRA BizApp. To qualify, your social insurance number (SIN) associated with a business number must be on file with the CRA. If you did not provide your SIN during registration, you can send official documentation to show the name(s) of authorized individuals either by fax or mail to your tax centre.
Representatives and CRA BizApp
Representatives acting for you (including accountants and employees) can only access your account(s) through Represent a Client.

CRA BizApp is designed to work within a web browser with an active Internet connection. If you are having difficulty launching the application due to connectivity issues, please contact your service provider or technical support team.

Personal information and CRA Business Tax Reminders app
The CRA Business Tax Reminders app does not interact with the CRA or other government systems and no personal and/or business data is shared through the use of this service. All information gathered to use this service is secured through your personal security settings on your mobile device.
Limitation on how many reminders you can set
The mobile device you use sets this limitation.
Calendar reminders are set to a maximum of five years. When you first set up the reminders, you can decide the length of time. The last three reminders will prompt you to renew your reminders.
If you entered the wrong information in the setup, or your tax obligations change
You will have to return to the home page and select the account you need to update.
If you have set up the calendar reminders on an Apple device, you will have to go to the settings page of the app and delete the reminders before updating your account information. Otherwise, you may receive duplicate reminders.
How to remove a program account
On the account page, swipe left on the account you want to remove.
If you have set up calendar reminders on an Apple device, you will have to go to the settings page of the app and delete the reminders before you delete the account.
Calendar reminders not removed with your account(s) on your Apple device
This is a problem with the iOS version of the app. Before removing an account, remove the reminders by going to the settings page of the app. If the account has already been removed and the alerts have not cleared, you have to manually remove unwanted reminders from the calendar.
You miss a due date
This service is meant to help you meet your tax obligations. However, the CRA and the Government of Canada are not responsible for the accuracy, reliability, or currency of reminders, since they are generated based on information you enter.
If you enter wrong information or your device or the app malfunctions, the CRA is not responsible for any interest or penalties you may be charged because you missed the due dates to file your returns or make payments.
You are responsible for making sure you meet your tax obligations according to the Income Tax Act and the Excise Tax Act.
