How to Override 'RC' Business Number for Trust Beneficiary on 'Beneficiary details' Form

The T3 'Beneficiary details' requires a BN (Business Number) in a pre-determined format.  The predetermined format for a "Corporation, organization, association or instituion beneficiary" requires an "RC" code (representing a corporate income tax account) but the beneficiary in my case is a registered charity (BN uses "RR").  Does anyone know how to override the "RC" code requirement in the data entry field of the software so that the slips are correct and CRA does not going looking for an entity that does not exist?  Thanks.



Here is what you can do to override 'RC' Business Number for Trust Beneficiary on 'Beneficiary details' Form:

1.  While on the BN (Business Number) field, right-click on this field.
2.  From the drop-down list select "Format override".
3.  Then hit the "Delete" key on the keyboard to clear this field.

Now you should be able to enter the business number that uses 'RR'.

Hope this helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
