Did you know that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is adding a new feature to its online services that will give businesses the choice of receiving some of their CRA mail online? Through My Business Account, businesses that sign up for this service will receive an email notification when there's mail to view in their secure online account. No more paper correspondence to pile up!

CRA's new online mail service is faster and easier than managing paper correspondence from the CRA. It also reduces your cost of doing business by saving you time.

You'll be able to receive the following online:

  • Notices of assessment and reassessment
  • Some letters for the accounts you select — for example, corporate and goods and services tax/harmonized tax accounts

Other types of correspondence, including payroll-related mail, will be available online in the future.

So how does it all work?

First, you need to register for or log into My Business Account. Then select “Manage online mail” and follow the steps to select the accounts for which you would like to receive online mail.
