Guideline on Completing the Recipient Electronic Payment Registration Request Form - United States Vendors Only

PDF Version

Introduction

The Government of Canada has announced that direct deposit will replace cheques as the method of payment. As a result, for Justice Canada, direct deposit will be mandatory as of April 1st, 2014. The Department is asking you to sign up for direct deposit by completing the "Recipient Electronic Payment Registration Request form".

There are two electronic payment modes available:

  • Direct Deposit (DD) - Once payments are deposited, DOJ will send the following information by e-mail: amount of payment, date of payment, invoice number, DOJ reference number, and brief description of the payment. This e-mail notification will act in lieu of a cheque stub.
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) - To enrol in EDI you must contact your financial institution to ensure that the account is EDI-capable. There may be a fee for this service, as the financial institution notifies its clients according to its own criteria.

Changes to bank account used

If you wish to make any changes to the bank account used for payments (change of address, financial institution, branch, account number, etc.) you must complete a new Recipient Electronic Payment Registration Request form. When you request one of these changes, DO NOT CLOSE the present account until you receive your payment in accordance with that change.

Completing of Form

There are three sections of the Recipient Electronic Payment Registration Request form that must be completed by the recipient.

1 - Types of Request

Please complete this section by filling out one of the three request types described below.
