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