To electronically file a taxpayer's return using EFILE web service:
Note: You cannot use the transmission Web page available from the NETFILE Web site. Transmission on that site is restricted to individuals filing their own returns.
As stated in section 150.1(3) of the Income Tax Act:
"For the purposes of section 150, where a return of income of a taxpayer for a taxation year is filed by way of electronic filing, it shall be deemed to be a return of income filed with the Minister in prescribed form on the day the Minister acknowledges acceptance of it."
Note: For an electronic record to be deemed a return of income filed with the Minister in prescribed form:
All returns filed with the Canada Revenue Agency are processed in cycles. Accepted returns are entered in the next available cycle. Cycle processing begins in mid-February, and Notices of Assessment for returns processed in the first cycle should be issued by the end of that month.
