E-services for large corporations and multinational enterprises

Large corporations and multinational enterprises have distinct e-service needs. In this context, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) refers to large corporations’ corporate directors and officers as business owners. These business owners are not involved in the day-to-day tax operations of the business and may find it preferable to delegate the authority to perform certain online functions to identified representatives, including employees.

In addition to authorization to access certain online information, business owners can give employees the ability to communicate online with the CRA through Submit an enquiry, Respond to notices, Submit documents and Audit enquiries. The CRA’s E-Services portals are the preferred communication method for audits as it is a secure two-way communication system that helps to streamline the audit process. Large corporations are encouraged to become familiar with the portals and to authorize individuals and/or groups to communicate with the CRA through the portals during an audit.

Large corporations can tailor the scope of all authorizations to match the needs of an employee or a group of employees by restricting or expanding access to account types (such as RC, RP, and RT) and/or to accounts in a type (such as RC0001, RP0001, and RT0001).

Business owners can choose to authorize individuals through a RepID, groups of individuals through a GroupID or any combination of individuals and groups. When considering how best to manage authorizations, business owners should review Authorization to access online information.
