Bill Payments & Transfers
How do I register a bill using online banking?
- Select the Pay Bills tab.
- Select Add a Payee.
- You'll be asked to answer a security question.
- You can then select a payee from the drop down menu and click Submit.
- Enter your bill account number and click Submit.
Keep in mind that although most vendors will receive your funds within one business day of making your payment, it may take some time for them to process it. Since these processing times may vary, it’s a good idea to check with your vendor to find out how far in advance you should make your payment in order to meet their due date.
How do I make payments to CRA?
For personal (non-business) payments to CRA, you can add CRA as a payee under Pay Bills > Add a Payee for Personal Tax
Payments, Personal Tax Installments or Personal Tax Arrears.
For business payments to CRA, click Pay Bills and select Government Payments to search for the correct CRA vendor.
Keep in mind that CRA payments will be debited from your account and sent to CRA on the date scheduled. Payments cannot be scheduled for the same day they are entered into the website. To allow time for CRA to process your payment, ensure that your payments are scheduled 3 days before their due date.
