The General Index of Financial Information (GIFI) is a list of accounts and information that are found on financial statements. Each item on the GIFI account list has a unique code that you can match with ledger account numbers from your chart of accounts. For example, the GIFI code for cash is 1001.

You must use GIFI codes when you submit financial statement information to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) in both paper and electronic returns.


For current information and regulations, visit Canada Revenue Agency.

You must complete the following tasks before you begin to use GIFI codes:

  • Set up dimensions based on your general ledger accounts by using the 财务维度集 form. For more information, see 财务维度集 (窗体).

  • Create a row definition for your company financial statement. For more information, see 设计传统财务报表的行结构.

  • Set up financial statement information for your company by using the 财务报表 form.

  • Download the binary file of GIFI codes from CustomerSource.

Use the following procedures to import GIFI codes into Microsoft Dynamics AX, and then use them for financial reporting.

Download the binary file of GIFI codes to your computer hard disk.
