Business Registration Online – What you can do
Planning to hire for your business? When you have an active payroll account, you can recruit employees for free on the Government of Canada's Job Bank. Post jobs, get matched to qualified candidates and invite them to apply – all in one place.
1. What you can do
You can use Business Registration Online (BRO) to:
- get a business number (BN)
- register for some types of program account
- link to other business online registries for some provincial programs, such as Ontario and Nova Scotia
If you want to register as a non-resident business, go to Non-Resident Business Number and Account Registration Web Form.
CRA program accounts you can register for using BRO
If you have a BN, you can use BRO to register for program accounts. If you just received a BN and are in BRO, without leaving, you can register for the following types of program account:
- corporation income tax
- payroll deductions
- registered charity
- information returns
- underused housing tax
For information about other CRA program accounts that are not found in BRO, go to Other CRA program accounts.
BRO and Provincial partners
After getting your BN and registering for CRA program accounts through BRO, you can transfer to one of the provinces listed below.
Before you click the Transfer to provincial site button, make sure you have registered for all the program accounts you need because your session in BRO will end once you connect to one of the provinces.
