Changes affecting your GST/HST return
Unique access code
As part of its ongoing efforts to reduce red tape for businesses and simplify its electronic services, starting October 19, 2015, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will provide all GST/HST registrants with a new and unique access code on their GST34-2, Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) Return for Registrants, or GST34-3, Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) Electronic Filing Information.
As of October 19, 2015, you will also be able to change your access code to one of your choice by going to www.cra.gc.ca/gsthst-accesscode. You can use this access code to file all your future GST34-2s or GST34-3s.
Delivery of the GST34-3, Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) Electronic Filing Information
Also starting October 19, 2015, how often you receive your GST34-3, and what you get with it will change.
For example: As a monthly filer, you now receive a GST34-3 every month throughout the year. After October 19, 2015, you will receive one GST34-3 package that has everything you need to file your 12 monthly returns. Your filing and payment/remittance due dates remain the same
