Online payment methods

The CRA provides several online payment options that let businesses make their payments anytime, from anywhere.

Today business owners can make payments through:

  • online banking
  • telephone banking
  • Visa® Debit or Interac® Online debit card
  • a pre-authorized debit
  • a credit card through a third-party service provider
  • a third-party service provider, who will send payments and remittances on your behalf for a fee.

We are interested in hearing any feedback you may have about paying online. Is there a reason you choose one online payment method over another? How do you find the process overall?

For those who don't pay online, is there a particular reason you choose not to?

A few points:
- Would be great to have more options to ensure a payment is applied against the correct account and/or reporting period.
- Keep adding financial institutions: some major players are still missing (e.g. CIBC, Vancity)
- How about enabling CRA as a vendor, similar to what is available for personal taxes: sign in to your bank account, add CRA business as a vendor, enter your business number with appropriate RC, RP or RT code for validation.

It would be nice to have the option to pay arrears or penalties online especially on the payroll account.

It should be possible to make payments for Trusts and Estates online. The My Payment system allows for softwood lumber payments, among many others that seem less common than T3 returns.

Businesses that bank with Credit Unions are unable to make payments through the My Business account.
Please update to include Credit Unions.

It is becoming more difficult to find the "my payments" button on your website. Can you make it more easily recognizable?
