NETFILE Certified Tax Software Solution | UFile

NETFILE Certification

UFile for Windows and UFile ONLINE are NETFILE certified.


The NETFILE service normally opens starting mid-February.

Quebec returns may be filed electronically until mid-January of the year following the taxation year in question.

In order to file electronically, using NETFILE, your tax return must be prepared using NETFILE-certified tax software. NETFILE certification is a rigorous testing procedure required by, and undertaken with CRA and with RQ (Revenu Québec) to ensure that the software meets high standards of quality and reliability.

UFile welcomes the certification process as part of its ongoing partnership with CRA and with RQ to produce reliable tax software of the highest quality.

Unless otherwise advised, note that after mid-January of the following year, you can no longer NETFILE a tax return for the current year, nor can you NETFILE tax returns for prior years. However, you can continue to use UFile to prepare your return and file it on paper, by mail.
