How your premium is calculated

You pay your premium provisionally—that is, you pay for your insurance at the beginning of a period, and adjust it at the end.

The method used to calculate your premium varies slightly depending whether the amount of wages you declare are:

  • above $1.5 million
  • $1.5 million or less. 

In addition to your wages, your industry rate and previous claims experience are also important factors in your premium calculation.
