CRA Business Number (CRA BN)


The Canada Revenue Agency Business Number is an employer’s “account number” that they are assigned when they register with the CRA as an employer. The source deductions (employee’s income tax, CPP and EI premiums plus the employer’s CPP and EI premiums) are sent to this account.

A business number is attached to an individual’s name and Social Insurance Number (SIN) for life, as one may need it for multiple reasons over the years. An employer can use the same business number if they operate a sole proprietorship business and employ a domestic worker. This does not, however, mean that you can complete taxes with your household employee included under your sole proprietorship.
