Annual Employer Statements web service now open for Employers, Accountants and Bookkeepers
Employers are now able to submit their 2014 Annual Employer Statements (AES) online. We recommend that you take a few minutes and review the web demo before completing your annual employer statements.
An online service is also available for accounting and bookkeeping companies for submitting Annual Employer Statements for their clients. More information for Accountants and Bookkeepers.
Annual Employer Statement packages were mailed to employers in January and contain important information to help you file your statements online.
The AES package includes:
- Employer Payroll Statement
- Occupational Health and Safety Statement(s)
- Employer Contractor Statement
If your business is already registered to use the Commission's web portal, connect, contact your in-house employer administrator to get set up for this service.
If your organization is not registered for connect, you can still submit your statements online by using the Access Code located on your Employer Payroll Statement.
Benefits of reporting through connect:
- Convenient and easy to use
- Secure submission
- Tools to help improve PRIME compliance
- Importing of contractor information
