The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has been listening to, and working with, small and medium-sized businesses to help reduce the compliance burden. As a business owner, you spend a lot of time managing your business affairs. From what we've heard during our consultations with you, you want us to eliminate the red tape you encounter when fulfilling your tax obligations, and help you meet important deadlines. Well, we have good news! The CRA has just released a new mobile application that will make remembering business-related tax deadlines a lot easier, and give you more time to run your business.

The Business Tax Reminders mobile app is recommended for small and medium-sized businesses with annual revenue of $20 million or less and fewer than 500 employees. It allows business users to:

  • Create custom reminders for key CRA due dates related to instalment payments, returns, and remittances
  • Customize the reminder system for their personal business deadlines with either calendar or pop-up messages

The app is available free of charge on Apple iOS, Google Android, and BlackBerry mobile platforms. It is one of the many ways the CRA is improving services to small and medium-sized businesses, to help you manage your taxes and meet your business needs.
