Earlier this year, Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) brought to the attention of our members that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is working to make it easier to verify capital dividend account (CDA) balances. \n\nCapital gains and losses information is now available on the CRA’s secure online portal. Taxpayers and their representatives can now retrieve this information via My Business Account. \n\nThe CRA also plans to make a CDA balance request form available on its website, and had targeted April 2015 for the form’s release. \n\nThe CRA contacted us to confirm its commitment to publish the form. A technical oversight has delayed its availability, however. Addressing the problem might take some time, and the CRA promises to keep us updated on key developments, including any major setbacks they may encounter.
