Adding CRA program accounts to your business number
As of May 13, 2024, the CRA will no longer register import-export program accounts (RM). You will need to register these with the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) Client Portal.
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.
