There are three levels of services to choose from:
If your business has not registered for services offered through SETS, you can still file your return electronically. A unique E-file code is printed at the top of each tax return you receive. Using the E-file Code, you may file your return through SETS. If there is an amount owing, payment can be made by Internet banking, wire transfer, or cheque.
There is no registration required for Level 1 service.
You may apply for a unique user ID and password. In addition to filing returns, Level 2 service enables you to view your tax account information online. To register as a Level 2 filer, complete an "Application to E-file Returns and View Tax Information Online."
Level 2 Registration
