Closing online services: Revenu Québec gives businesses extra time

Closing online services: Revenu Québec gives businesses extra time

The temporary closure of some Revenu Québec online services due to a major IT flaw has led the organization to announce that companies whose deadline for submitting source discount returns is December 15 will have until December 17 to do so.

This extraordinary measure will allow nearly 170,000 companies to avoid being penalized.

“This additional delay will allow Revenu Québec to fully restore its online services. It will ensure that no interest or fines are imposed on any company as it is unable to meet its tax obligations due to this exceptional situation,” Revenu Québec said in a press release.

The organization also specified that the suspension of its services on the Internet “in no way harms the vast majority of payments made to citizens and companies that are entitled to receive them.”

Thus, alimony payments and sums associated with socio-financial programs and compensation are not affected.

Remember that, like other government agencies, Revenu Québec has temporarily suspended its online services over the weekend as a precaution, due to a security vulnerability affecting organizations around the world.

While all transaction systems at Revenu Québec have been restarted, access to the My Account portal remains closed.
