Get WAC button - where is it?

Recommended Posts

I require a Web Access Code to file my T2 return electronically.

1) Ufile under "Efile" tab 5 says "If you do not have a Federal Web Access Code you may automatically retrieve one by clicking the button GET WAC".... problem... the button isn't there???

2) CRA indicates to obtain a Web Access Code certain commercial tax preparations software packages have this capability without having to call CRA.  Does Ufile have this capability?? As indicated from #1 above, if it does where is is because it is not showing on my T2 online.

Anybody else having this issue?

Thanks Antoine7. But I am having the question as JulieL, where is GET WAC button in UFILE T2? 

Ufile under "Efile" tab 5 says "If you do not have a Federal Web Access Code you may automatically retrieve one by clicking the button GET WAC".... BUT....Where is the GET WAC button? If UFILE T2 doesn't have that button, please correct the message in UFILE and tell us there is no such button in UFILE, then we will not spend time try to find it. Thanks.

It is a year later and I am having the same issue.  There is no "Federal Efile" option - at least not with that exact name - anywhere in the Efile tab (Tab 5).

Can anyone tell me more specifically where to find the Get WAC button?  It is a Sunday and CRA offices are closed so I can't call them to get one.

There is a CRA web page to get a WAC (https://apps.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/leb0/wacretrieve/prot/Firsttime.action) for the first time filer.  But I need two pieces of information, both of which I am having trouble getting right. One is my "Account Number". I presume it is the Business Number with RC0001 appended at the end but that gives an error ("Error: 054 - Missing, invalid or incomplete information. Check your account number and try again.").  The 9-digit business number alone also gives an error.  The other is my Registration Date. I don't know where to find my Registration Date (can't find it in MyBusinessAccount) - anyone know?

This is frustrating ...

The T2 online package as of 2July 2019 is still incorrect in suggesting that you press the "Get WAC" button.  It does not exist.  After a bit of a run around I simply called CRA.

UFIle, can you either please update the package to do as the text suggests, or correct the text to be consistent with what the package does not do?


Thanks

 

PS: subsequent news

for other users....the secret is that the Mailing Address has to be completed to enable the "GetWAC" button.  The mailing Address window is elsewhere in the package, and even tough the mailing address could be the same as the corporate address you still have to fill it out.  redundant, but that is the way the program is working.  And the subtlety of the "GetWAC" button not being visible until you do this is silent on the eFile page. A communication deficiency which hopefully they will correct.
