Canada Revenue Agency Business Tax Reminders mobile app

Canada Revenue Agency launches first-ever CRA mobile app for small and medium-sized businesses.

The new app lets business users create custom reminders and alerts for key CRA due dates related to installment payments, returns, and remittances. Our Government developed the app following feedback from consultations with small and medium-sized businesses on how to improve the CRA’s services while reducing red tape and making it easier for businesses to fulfill their tax obligations.

This is just one example of how our Government is improving service options to meet the needs of Canada’s entrepreneurs. As part of the Government of Canada’s Red Tape Reduction Action Plan, a growing number of service enhancements and measures have been launched to reduce red tape for businesses, including several introduced in Economic Action Plan 2014, which the CRA is implementing this year. For example, since April, corporations have been able to file amended T2 income tax returns using commercial tax preparation software, and taxpayer representatives have been able to send an authorization request (Form RC59), electronically to the CRA on behalf of the businesses they represent. These are specific examples of the real results we are delivering for small and medium-sized businesses across the country.
