The CSST needs to know the amount of wages paid by employers in
order to calculate the insurance premium they must pay. For this
purpose, every employer must file a Statement of Wages in March of
every year. During this training session, participants will learn to
declare only what they must. This session takes into account the new
method of paying insurance premiums that came into force in 2011.
Does March 15 mean anything to you? This is the date by which you
must file your Statement of Wages with the CSST. The CSST
will use the information in this document to calculate your annual
premium. This means it is vital to complete this form correctly because
it affects your bill. The document may raise a number of questions.
The CSST needs two items of information in order to calculate a
company's annual premium: its contribution rate and the amount of
wages paid to employees.
The contribution rate is calculated annually by the CSST based on
data it holds on the company.
The amount of wages paid must be supplied by the employer. This is
why every year the CSST sends out the Statement of Wages form,
which businesses must complete and return by March 15.
Although this form is generally simple to complete for regular
employees, a number of questions may arise when you come to enter the
- Must the total amount paid as wages be included?
- What do I do if I have several classification units or exception
- In what cases must I declare my independent operators?
- Can I exclude directors?
- Is it advantageous to take out Personal Coverage?
- What do I do with my "rented" employees?
- Must I insure my volunteers?
- In what circumstances can I modify my statement?
It is in the company's interest to make sure its statement of
wages is completed correctly, because the CSST may during its auditing
operations correct the data supplied and claim any amounts due from the
company (with interest).
This training session is aimed at those who have to complete the
Statement of Wages form or who are interested in issues
concerning the calculation of premiums.
During this training session, the trainer reviews the form and
content of the Statement of Wages, adding information taken
from CSST documents, court decisions, etc. To get the maximum benefit
from this training session, participants are encouraged to prepare
their questions in advance.
