Employer payroll revision
At the beginning of each year, employers are required to submit an Employer’s Payroll Return and Contract Labour Report (EPR) that provides an estimate of their payroll for the upcoming year.
At the end of each year, if an employer’s actual payroll is more than 125% of the estimated amount that was declared on their EPR, the employer will be subject to a penalty and an interest charge on the amount of payroll above 125% of the estimate.
To avoid this, an employer must report a revised estimate by the end of 2018. If a revision is reported after October 1, 2018, the employer will be required to pay the full premium assessed on the revision immediately.
