QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll - Workers' compensation

User-added imageWorkers' Compensation Insurance is mandatory in Canada but the rules for registration vary by province. Once you've hired your first employee you should reach out to the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) or commission in your province or territory to determine your obligations as an employer.

Note: While we can help with making your payments, current regulations dictate that you're responsible for submitting the mandatory reports/paperwork. We're unable to do so on your behalf.

In order to add a WCB rate, navigate to the Pay & Tax Settings under the Employee tab in QuickBooks Online.

  1. From the Workers' compensation tab, select Add rate.
  2. Select the Province from the drop-down list.
  3. Enter your Account Number.
  4. Enter the Rate used for calculations.
  5. Enter the Maximum wage allowed.
  6. Save when completed.

To assign an added rate to an employee:

  1. Locate the employee and choose the Edit option on the right-hand side of the list of employees.
  2. Go to the Employment tab.
  3. Select a rate from the drop-down menu under Workers' compensation rate.
  4. Save when completed.

Note: QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll can only handle the WSIB/WCB remittances on your behalf. We are not authorized to complete your WSIB/WCB reporting. However, to help you complete your reporting accurately, we provide a handy WSIB Payroll Report, which can be found in your Reports tab.
