ECU is implementing enhanced procedures related to the handling of cash and cheque transactions, in support of regulatory requirements.

As part of these changes, ECU retail staff will no longer be able to accept cheques payable to third party companies, or the CRA, as payment for your bills. In place of this practice, we have developed a simplified Payment Authorization Form that can be completed in your office, identifying the amount of the payment, and the bill that is meant to be paid. This form should be signed in accordance with the signing authority for your business and then presented by your staff member at an ECU branch for payment. The bill remittance voucher should be included with the Payment Authorization Form to ensure the correct vendor is being credited.

Carbon copy Payment Authorization Forms are available for pick-up at your local branch. Commercial members can also print out the form, available at the link below, and bring it into any ECU branch.

Instructions for using the ECU Payment Authorization web form 

  1. Complete all mandatory information on the form, including Member Name, Date, Debit information (branch, account #, account type) Credit information (payee name, payee account #, amount), and signature(s).
  2. Bring completed form to branch with bill remittance voucher.
  3. Branch staff will make a copy of the completed form and retain for ECU record keeping.


For questions related to the Payment Authorization Form, please contact our Member Contact Centre at 1-888-767-9535.

As an alternative to submitting payment using the Payment Authorization Form, bill payments can be made through online banking from the convenience of your office, or at the ATM. If you are not already signed up for online banking, please speak to a Member Consultant who can assist you and walk you through how to make online bill payments. 

Online banking also offers a ‘Pay Business Taxes’ feature which allows you to submit remittance and make payment for the following CRA bills:

  • GST/HST 34 Filing and Remittance
  • GST/HST Amount Owing Remittance (RC 159)
  • GST/HST Interim Payments Remittance (RC 160)
  • Corporation Tax (RC 159 / RC 160)
  • Payroll and Source Deduction – Current Year
