Representatives for non-resident accounts

To authorize a representative for your non-resident account or to make changes to representative information, you have to sign a letter of authorization and send it to us.

Your letter of authorization has to show:

  • your non-resident account number
  • your name
  • the name of your representative, with his or her address and telephone number
  • a statement from you or an authorized officer to let the CRA release your information


For a company, your letter should be on company letterhead, signed by an authorized officer.

To cancel an authorization, you can phone or fax the CRA, or send your request to the Non-Resident Withholding Section in writing.


You cannot use Form T1013, Authorizing or Cancelling a Representative, or Form RC59, Business Consent for Access by telephone and Mail, to authorize or cancel a representative for a non-resident account. Also, representatives cannot use the Represent a Client service for non-resident accounts.
