File tax returns
This topic applies to CaseWare ReviewCompTax.
CaseWare ReviewCompTax lets you file the completed return with the CRA. To do this, you must have the appropriate credentials already set up. Alternatively, you can export the return as a PDF file and then either share it electronically or print a hard copy.
With the tax data imported, the engagement work complete, and all outstanding issues fixed, you can begin your electronic filing via the CRA's EFILE program. Select EFILE from the top menu to open the EFILE information page.
From this page, you can file your return to the CRA with one of two sets of credentials:
If your firm is a Certified Tax Preparer, you can enter your CRA Login Information.
Alternatively, you can enter a WACode (Web Access Code) provided by the client.
If you require a Web Access Code and have not yet been provided with one, select WAC - Web Access Code Online Request and complete the request form.
Note: After you file your tax return using EFILE, the client reference copy will automatically download to your Documents page.
Print the return
If your client requests a copy of the return for their records, you can create a PDF file directly from CaseWare ReviewCompTax. This can be saved to disk and shared with your client electronically or printed as a hard copy. To learn more, see Print tax returns.
