Submit Annual Employer Statements online
An online service is available for employers to submit their Annual Employer Statements. The online service is available from January to September each year and is a fast, easy and convenient way for employers to meet their annual reporting requirements. Some of the benefits of online submission include:
- immediate confirmation of submission;
- importing contractor information to reduce data entry;
- secure submission environment;
- relevant question prompting – only answer those that apply to your firm;
- tools to help improve PRIME compliance; and
- built-in error checking.
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 in the top right hand corner of your Employer Payroll Statement. Watch for your Annual Employer Statement package in January for more information.
