Running T4As for Vendors

This topic explains how to configure and generate Vendor T4As.

Company Information Setup

Before you start to configure Vendor T4As, you need to specify that your localization is Canada and configure information specifically for your company.

  1. Click Tell Me and search for Company Information. Select the page from the drop-down list.
    The Company Information page displays.
  2. In the Localization field, choose Canada.
    Tip: If the Localization field does not display, click Show More in the top right corner of the FastTab.
  3. Expand the Vendor T4A FastTab.
  4. Complete the Vendor T4A Fields.
    The telephone number format required is 3 numeric, followed by (-) and 4 numeric (for example, 999-9999). The T4A Transmitter No. field must be in the format MM + 6 numeric. For example: MM555555.


  • If you are filing one return only and do not have an existing Transmitter number please use generic transmitter number MM555555 to file this return. If you wish to obtain a Transmitter number, please call Revenue Canada 1-800-665-5164 to obtain one.
  • If you will be filing more than one return, please use the Transmitter (MM) number that Revenue Canada assigned to you. If you do not have a transmitter number and will be filing more than 1 return, please call Revenue 1-800-665-5164 to obtain one.
