Save time, file online

Web services to file your 2013 Annual Employer Statements (AES) are available. There are three ways to file:

Choose fastfile if your organization does not have a connect account. You will need your employer payroll statement for your access code and other required information.

If your organization has a connect account, simply log on. Contact your in-house employer administrator if you do not already have a user name and password.

Accounting and bookkeeping companies can submit their clients’ statements using a single login with connect.

The 2013 AES packages were mailed to employers in January, including (1) Employer Payroll Statement, (2) Occupational Health and Safety Statement(s), and (3) Employer Contractor Statement. Also included is important information to help you file your statements online.

Attention! If you encounter difficulties using our web services, please refer to our useful tools section to ensure that you have all the required software updates or contact us at 709-778-6996 or 1-855-840-6996 for assistance.
