Starting February 10, 2014, batch processing and acknowledgement retrieval will no longer be available through EFILE Online Plus. For more information, visit What's new.
EFILE is an automated service that permits those who prepare and file taxes on behalf of others to electronically file the current year income tax and benefit return to the CRA via the Internet.
Choose from our two methods of electronic transmission. To become a registered electronic filer you must first register or, if you already have an efiler number, you must renew.
- EFILE Online - allows you to transmit your client's returns individually over the Internet. You get an acknowledgement of the individual return instantly.
- EFILE Online Plus - allows you to transmit from 1 to 30 of your client's returns at one time over the Internet. When you send a batch of returns, acknowledgement takes only a few hours. Using EFILE Online Plus, you can also access selected information about a client's account data from the System for the Electronic Notification of Debt (SEND) before preparing your client's return.
