Submit your SIN for tax info.
CRA regulations require couriers to provide Skip with their Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Business Number (BN).
SIN/BN will only be used for tax purposes. We prioritize the security, privacy, and confidentiality of your information.
These FAQs should answer most other questions:
Why are you asking me to enter my SIN/BN?
To comply with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations, gig companies must report income earned by independent contractors (couriers). As such, we need your Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Business Number (BN).
Your SIN/BN is a crucial component of this process as it helps Skip to accurately report your earnings and comply with tax obligations.
Does providing SIN/BN affect my income reporting obligation?
We cannot provide you with financial advice. We can confirm that once we submit the T4A, CRA will have a record of the amount you earned on the Skip network for the tax year. You can speak with a financial professional if you have any concerns.
Will my access to the Skip network be revoked if I don’t provide my SIN/BN?
Yes. All couriers must provide their SIN/BN to ensure compliance with CRA regulations and remain eligible to work on the Skip network.
What is Skip planning to use my SIN/BN for?
Your SIN/BN will be used for tax reporting purposes only, in accordance with the CRA requirements. This includes the issuance of the T4A slips to report your earnings accurately.
How will Skip store this information and ensure it is safe?
We prioritize the security, privacy, and confidentiality of your information. For this purpose, your SIN/BN information is stored within the Skip internal software on secure and encrypted systems with restricted access and security policies. We would like to remind you to exercise caution regarding phishing messages.
Only enter your SIN/BN within the Courier Portal.
SkipTheDishes will never request your SIN/BN information or your account password via phone calls, email responses, or via external web pages other than the official Courier Portal. Remember not to share your account password with anyone.

Who will have access to my SIN/BN?
Employee access to your SIN will be limited. Skip will share your SIN/BN with employees who require access to the SIN to do their job. Otherwise, your SIN/BN will only be shared externally with the Canada Revenue Agency.
Can I review or update my SIN/BN information later?
Once provided, you will be unable to update your SIN/BN again for 7 days, so please ensure you enter the correct information. Providing an invalid SIN/BN can lead to discrepancies in your tax reporting with CRA, causing wrong taxation and leading to an incorrect tax assessment. If you need any support, please reach out to [email protected]

What if I entered an incorrect SIN/BN? How can I update it?
You will be able to update your SIN/BN within the next 7 days after you provided the incorrect one.
Can I provide SIN/BN anytime during the year?
Yes. You can provide your SIN/BN at any time. To receive your T4A summary, ensure you provide your SIN/BN before the end of the fiscal year.
