The Electronic Filing page contains information required by eForms to submit electronic returns. See Electronic Filing Preparation for further information regarding electronic filing.

 

Electronic Filing Defaults

 

You are not required to submit a test file to CRA or RQ before submitting an electronic return as ELM Computer Systems has already obtained approval for the electronic return on your behalf.

 

NOTE: All data fields indicated by an asterisk (*) are required in order to submit an XML file to the government.

 

Transmitter Information

Enter the information for the company that will be submitting the electronic return; not the company for whom the electronic return has been prepared (unless they are the same company). Note: Do not enter any information pertaining to ELM Computer Systems in this section as we cannot help the CRA or RQ with any questions regarding the return.
