Online banking with CIBC

June 19, 2017

Importers with their own account security or those who are under the GST Direct Payment Option can now make their monthly payments online, for amounts owing on their monthly Statement of Accounts not that of a customs broker, through CIBC (in addition to Scotiabank, TD, Banque Nationale, RBC, BMO, Citibank, Bank of America and Tangerine).


 Online banking with CIBC works the same way as paying any other bill online.

  1. On the CIBC online banking portal, importers must add:  “Canada Border Services Agency” as a payee.
  2. Use your business number (BN15 - e.g., 123456789RM0001) as the account number (not your Canada Revenue Agency RT account number).
