Before you start
Before you start, we recommend that you complete the following steps:
- verify that the Business Number, name, address, and reporting period information printed on your electronic filing information package (Form GST34-3) or personalized return (Form GST34-2) is correct;
- verify that you are eligible to use GST/HST TELEFILE;
- prepare your return information in Canadian funds; and,
- if you have an amount owing, find out how to make a payment to the Canada Revenue Agency.
How do you file your return?
Once you have completed these steps, call the toll-free telephone number using a touch-tone phone, and enter your return information when prompted by the automated messages. When you successfully file your return, you will be given a six-digit confirmation number for your records.
To use GST/HST TELEFILE, you will need the four-digit access code printed on the electronic filing information package (Form GST34-3) or the personalized return (Form GST34-2) that you received in the mail.
Your access code will be the same for all future returns. You can change your access code to a number of your choice by using GST/HST Access Code Online.
If you are the coordinator of a closely related group of corporations (i.e. you have filed election GST303) and you file returns electronically, you must still send your letter of direction to your tax centre.
