WorkSafeBC's Annual Payroll Report and Payment is due in February 28

Looking to save time? Don’t want to miss your February 28 deadline to report your payroll data to WorkSafeBC? You can achieve both with Online Services

Even if you have no wages to report, you must complete your return by the due date

Gather these details:

  • Your WorkSafeBC account number and payroll report ID. Both are on your payroll report.
  • Your payroll records for the previous year or quarter, including:
    • The total wages and salaries paid to workers, including shareholders' earnings.
    • The total payments to contractors and unregistered subcontractors in the previous year or quarter. In some circumstances, an equipment allowance may be claimed against unregistered subcontractors' earnings.
    • The names of workers and active shareholders who have earned more than the maximum assessable earnings for the reporting year (the maximum is listed on your form). See the Assessable earnings guide for more details.

More information is available in the Guide to completing Annual Payroll Report. If you have subcontractors you may also need this worksheet.

Visit the secure Online Services website and enter your data. 

Mark your calendar to periodically review your company's actual payroll throughout 2022 against your annual estimate. Taking this step near the end of May and December helps ensure you only pay your fair share of WCB premiums. 

Employers failing to comply with payroll reporting obligations (eg., late filing, non-filing and under-reporting actual payroll) can be charged penalties.
