CORPORATE REGISTRY ISSUING BUSINESS NUMBERS
As of November 29, 2004, the Corporate Registry is issuing Business Numbers automatically through Corporate Online. For new companies, Corporate Online automatically requests a Business Number from Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). After the request, CRA generates and sends the new Business Number to the Corporate Registry, in turn, the Registry will then notify the company. For certain other filings, Corporate Online requests the existing Business Number and sends it to CRA.
