  1. go to Payments
  2. Add/Delete Payees
  3. Note Payee number of existing account
  4. Delete the existing Payee that you would like to change the name of
  5. Select ‘Add Payee’
  6. Search Payee by name or browse by type
  7. Select Payee
  8. Add Account Number
  9. Add Account Nickname
  10. Submit

No changes to existing GST/HST 34 form
The existing GST/HST 34 Filing and Remittance form within online banking will remain unchanged. It will continue to be used for HST in Ontario and GST for all provinces.

Online options for PST filing/payment – eTaxBC portal
The BC government has developed an online portal called eTaxBC for filing and payment of BC taxes, including PST.

Taxpayers can use this portal to set up a direct debit to pay their tax amounts. More information can be found on the BC government’s website.

We encourage EKC members to use this portal as a convenient way to remit PST online.

NEW! MemberDirect Alerts

EKC is now offering mobile alerts on the MemberDirect online banking site.

MemberDirect Alerts
The alerts feature allows our members to receive notifications about activity that has occurred on their accounts or in online banking, such as an attempt to change the members PAC. Such notifications, called “alerts”, also provide information concerning the account balance and activity:

  • new payee added
  • account has insufficient funds( Note: this alert is only available if you have overdraft protection (SAOD)
  • alert if a withdrawal is over a specified amount
  • alert if a deposit is over a specified amount

Alert Account Nicknames
Members are required to give their accounts short nicknames, which are used to identify their accounts in alerts messages. The use of nicknames prevents the transmission of information that can be used to identify individuals or accounts.

Registering for Alerts
In order to receive alerts via email or mobile phones, members must register an email or mobile phone contact via MemberDirect online banking.
