Attestation de Revenu Québec
The Attestation de Revenu Québec certifies that a person or business met the following conditions on the date of its request:
- It had filed the returns and reports required under Québec tax laws.
- It did not have any overdue account with the Minister of Revenue of Québec in respect of a tax law or, if it did, it had reached a payment agreement and had been observing it, or the collection of its debts had been legally suspended.
Filing a request
Requests for an Attestation de Revenu Québec must be filed in My Account for businesses. If the person or business meets the conditions, the Attestation is issued right away and can be printed or downloaded as a PDF file.
A person or business that has obligations respecting the Attestation but does not meet the criteria needed to register for My Account for businesses can still request an Attestation.
It is also required for most public contracts, as well as to receive authorization from the Autorité des marchés publics to enter into public contracts and subcontracts.
In addition, employment agencies and temporary foreign worker recruitment agencies must have a valid Attestation to obtain or renew the licence issued by the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) needed to operate in Québec. They must also have a valid Attestation at all times in order for the licence to remain in effect.
