Change a business address
Notify the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as soon as possible of changes in any of your business addresses.
Different types of business addresses
Physical address: The physical address is the business or head office address. This address must be where the day-to-day activities take place.
It must represent the physical location of your actual business. You cannot use such things as rural route (RR) numbers or post office (PO) boxes as a business address. If a street address is not available, use the legal description of the location of the business. For example, Lot 1, Concession 2.
Mailing address: The mailing address can be different from the physical address. For example, you could have your business mail delivered to your home or your accountant.
Books and records address: If your business books and records are at a location different from your physical address, you must provide this information to the CRA.
Different mailing addresses for each of your registered business accounts: If you have different mailing addresses for your registered business accounts, you or your representative must notify us of the change of address.
