Annual returns

Reporting the assessable earnings paid to your workers for the current year and estimate of what you expect to pay in the upcoming year will ensure that you have the correct WCB-Alberta coverage in place. Through filing your annual return, the information you provide will help make sure you are paying the correct premium amount and receiving a fair and accurate invoice.
