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 2021 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.
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 2021. Discounted premium price cannot go below $200.
Find out more about:
- JobKeeper payments and wages declaration
- declaring unpaid interns (required as per the Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019)
- Queensland’s WorkCover average premium rate remains the same for the eighth consecutive year.
New Interim Certificate of Insurance, keeping you covered
This year, you will receive an Interim Certificate of Insurance, that will cover you from 1 July 2021 until 30 September 2021. This gives you clear coverage during the policy renewal season.
We will email you your Interim Certificate of Insurance at the start of July.
Once you have paid your premium for 2021–2022 year or committed to a payment plan, we will send you your Certificate of Currency, which will cover you from 1 July 2021 until 30 June 2022.
