What is my GST/HST Filing Access Code?

Have you misplaced your GST/HST remittance form which shows your filing access code? Don't panic! Now you can create your own!


As CRA is continuously trying to improve their filing efficiency, as of October 19, 2015, they have implemented a system that provides all GST/HST registrants with a new and unique access code on their GST34-2 return.

All registrants will now be able to personalize their access code by going to: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/gsthst-accesscode/.

This access code can then be used to file all future returns online.

To change your access code, you will need to enter your business number and your choice of the following information from a previously filed return:

  • the reporting period and line 109 (net tax) where the amount on line 109 is not $0.00; or,
  • the reporting period and confirmation number from a return filed using GST/HST NETFILE, TELEFILE, or Internet File Transfer.
