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 2019 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 to help you determine what you need to declare, or get step-by-step help when you renew online.

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 2019.

*discounted premium price cannot go below $200
