Click to see more information The Canada Revenue Agency CRA is shifting toward a client-centric approach to program and service delivery.
Over the past year, many improvements have been made. To improve telephone service, the budget proposed additional funding to enhance telephone technology, to hire more agents, and to provide additional training for agents.
The CRA now allows more callers to reach its call centres, rather than be faced with a busy signal, by extending wait times in the queue.
This has reduced the number of attempts that callers need to make to reach an agent.
The CRA also continues to expand its telephone self-service options. Since Februarycallers can obtain their account balance and details about the last payment made to the CRA without speaking to an agent.
This program assists vulnerable Canadians with tax filing and access to the benefits they are entitled to. As well, the budget provided funding to support additional year-round tax preparation offered by community organizations, and to conduct more outreach activities to vulnerable population segments including Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, seniors, newcomers and refugees, modest-income Canadians, housing insecure individuals and youth.
In Novemberthe CRA introduced the "tell us once" approach, a consent-based service that will make it easier for Canada Pension Plan recipients to update and share their direct deposit banking information quickly and safely between the CRA and Employment and Social Development Canada.
Individuals can now pay their taxes in person at any Canada Post retail outlet with cash or a debit card by using the personalized quick response QR code found on their remittance voucher, or by creating a QR code online.
The CRA is continuously working to improve its services for individuals and businesses. In Maya new service was introduced to inform business clients that mail addressed to them has been returned to the CRA, by sending them a message to their My Business Account.
The CRA has expanded the Liaison Officer LO service, which offers the owners of small unincorporated businesses help to understand their tax obligations. In Octoberthe CRA launched BizApp, a mobile web app for small businesses and sole proprietors to keep on top of their business accounts securely, anytime and anywhere.
Since its launch, small businesses and sole proprietors have logged in more than 8, times. As of mid-October, close to payments had been made through pre-authorized debit in the app and this number is anticipated to grow as the service expands in late October to include the My Payment and QR code payment options.
This is the first step in a multi-year project that will re-engineer My Account, My Business Account and Represent a Client into a modern, client-focused digital service. The SYB consultations provide a forum for small and medium businesses and accountants to share valuable insights, which the CRA can use to make its programs and services more streamlined and client-focused.
During the in-person consultations, small and medium businesses and accountants are invited to provide feedback and recommendations to CRA senior officials in cities across Canada.
In Augustthe Minister of National Revenue announced that the Agency will open three new northern service centres in the territorial capitals of Whitehorse, Yellowknife and Iqaluit prior to the tax filing season.
These centres will better support territorial residents, Indigenous communities, and businesses. In addition to maintaining a physical presence throughout the year, the CRA will expand the outreach and the CVITP activities, and the LO service offered to businesses and self-employed individuals.
The CRA will also set up dedicated telephone lines to connect territorial residents to CRA agents who are familiar with northern tax matters. Before the start of the tax season, up to 12 CRA employees will be working in the territorial capitals to deliver these services.
In addition, the CRA is taking steps to improve back-end verification activities for the northern resident deductions, and will recommend regulatory amendments to simplify the lowest return airfare component of those deductions. The Northern Service Improvement Strategy also includes initiatives designed to proactively guide people on how to correctly claim the deduction and, ultimately, minimize the frequency of repeat reviews caused by recurring errors.
To ensure that Indigenous peoples are able to fully participate in the Canadian tax and benefit system, the CRA conducted research with Indigenous communities to identify issues and challenges related to tax filing.The items of militaria shown below can be viewed in our on-line shop complete with full descriptions, photographs and prices.: British Basket-Hilted Swords: A Typology of Basket-Type Sword Hilts Hardcover by Cyril Mazansky.
