T2 filing with Webaccess code

Kris Kaes

Recommended Posts

Hello Kris Kaes,

The CRA Web Access Code (WAC) is generated automatically by UFIle T2 on the EFile Tab – not from the CRA.  Before you can get the WAC code all errors must be cleared in the Review section. 
Before you can have the button [GET WAC] (Web Access Code) appear in the E-FILE tab, please complete the section Mailing address of the corporation.
>>Other addresses
   >>Mailing address of the corporation  < - - - COMPLETE THIS

As of 2018, the web access code is generated automatically in the EFile  tab via the UFile T2 software and not from the CRA.  Note that the Federal Web Access Code (WAC) is 8 digits.

To generate the WAC code:
>>>In the EFile Tab you should see on the screen:

>>First screen  :
Filing status for:  My_Corporation_Name
A corporation's file can be submitted when its applicable status shows "Ready for filing…………
….. Please ensure you have completed and reviewed all of your entries prior to filing.
My_Corporation_Name     - - -> Federal     [~ - >] Ready for filing      < - - - CLICK HERE
>>Second screen : 
Federal submission for: My_Corporation_Name
Canadian corporations should file a federal corporate income tax return. If the federal corporate income tax return is not filed electronically, then it may be printed and mailed to the Canada Revenue Agency.
To proceed with Corporation Internet Filing online transmission, ……………………….
………. Or, if filing on behalf of a client, my client has signed Form T183CORP and certified that the attached electronic return is correct, complete, and reports the client's income from all sources.

Federal Web Access Code (WAC)
If you do not have a Federal Web Access Code you may automatically retrieve one by clicking the button Get WAC
 [Get WAC]   < - - - CLICK HERE
Federal Web Access Code (WAC):  [         ]  < - - - CODE WILL APPEAR HERE

For Revenu Quebec
 Use the Clicsecur code (From Revenu Quebec)

***Do not confuse the section Get WAC Code (in EFile) with the EFile SetUp (in Interview), which is used by professional tax preparers registered with the CRA.  ***

EFILE number is entered in the Interview EFILE setup section:
EFILE setup :
*Your federal return will be transmitted under a Web Access Code (WAC). If you wish to transmit your return using an EFILE number then please enter your federal number here (ANNNN)   [         ]
*Your Quebec return will be transmitted under My Account for Businesses. If you wish to transmit your return using a NetFile number then please enter your Quebec number here (ANNNN)   [         ]

Hello Kris Kaes,

RE Error code(s) : 387  CRA cannot process the return since we have already assessed this tax year.  If you are submitting an amended return you must indicated this in your software.  Otherwise, contact the CRA’s Corporation Internet Filing Helpdesk at 1-800-959-2803

Please note you can not REFile using UFile T2. For a Refile you must submit this manually.  (note you can REFile electronically if using our professional T2 software DTMax T2).

For an adjustment of your T2 return a letter must be mailed to tax center that serves the corporation.
In your request, clearly identify the following:
1.the name of the corporation
2.the corporation's business number (BN)
3.the corporation's tax year
4.any details that apply
With your letter, include any relevant supporting documents, such as: 
•    revised financial statements, GIFI
•    revised schedules
For more information, please contact CRA corporation tax return department.
Revenu Québec :
