Your accident insurance policy with WorkCover Queensland—which covers your business for the cost of any work-related injuries to your workers—is due for renewal. You need to declare your wages information to us by 31 August 2020 so we can calculate your premium.
What you need to declare
To ensure you meet your workers' compensation obligations, it's important to be aware of who you need to cover, and what payments you need to declare as wages.
Use our Declaration of wages guide (PDF, 0.63 MB) to help you determine what you need to declare, or get step-by-step help when you renew online. We have made our wages declaration form clearer this year so you can feel confident that you have included all relevant payments when renewing your policy.
Declare your wages early to take full advantage of our flexible payment options, including:
- Interest-free monthly payment plans with deductions occurring on the date of your choice
- a 5% discount* if you pay your premium in full by 16 September.
Some payment options will not be available if you do not declare your wages by 31 August 2020.
