Adding CRA program accounts to your business number

Generally, when you register for a business number (BN), you also register for the program accounts you require at that time.

If your business expands after you register for a BN, you might need to add other program accounts to your BN.

The six major Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) business accounts are:

  • RT, Goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax
  • RP, Payroll deductions
  • RC, Corporate income tax
  • RM, Import-export
  • RR, Registered charity
  • RZ, Information returns

Before adding any program account, go to When you need a business number or Canada Revenue Agency program accounts.

If you determine that you need to add an account, go to How to register for a business number or Canada Revenue Agency program accounts.
