How to register for CRA My Business Account

My Business Account is a secure online portal that provides an opportunity to interact electronically with Canada Revenue Agency on various business accounts. Business accounts include GST/HST (except for GST/HST accounts administered by Revenu Québec), payroll, corporation income taxes, excise taxes, excise duties, and more.
To get access, you will need:
  • your CRA user ID and password; and
  • a Business Number for which you are authorized to access.
How can employers apply for CEWS*?
A portal through CRA My Business Account will be developed in the next three to six weeks. Employers should make sure they register for My Business Account and direct deposit with the CRA if they have not already done so in the past. Even if you have previously registered, we encourage trying to log onto My Business Account to ensure you will be ready as soon as the CEWS application process is live.
