Transmit a corporate return without an EFILE number

SOLVEDby IntuitUpdated February 22, 2023

A preparer needs to transmit a corporate return (T2), but does not have an EFILE number.


As an alternative to acquiring an EFILE number, preparers can acquire a Web Access Code (WAC) to transmit the return.

ProFile gives preparers the ability to apply for and receive this code online through a webservice, without having to call the Canada Revenue Agency's Corporation Internet Filing Helpdesk:


1. Select the Transmit this return option from the EFILE drop-down menu in the top toolbar.

ProFile reviews the return for any outstanding warning. If there are no auditor warnings, ProFile will display a green checkmark.

2. Click the OK button. The Corporate Internet Filing window displays.

3. In the Corporation Internet Filing window, choose the applicable method of filing the return:

  • Apply for a WAC; this automatically make a requests to CRA for the specific return based on the return's information, or:
  • Choose to enter an existing WAC

4. Click the Accept button to transmit the return.
