Changing your reported payroll is easy and you can do so at any time. You can make changes to your payroll reporting for the current year or a previous year:
- if you made an error at the time of reporting
- if there is a significant change to your current year payroll estimate
- if you need to change your actual payroll for a previous year
You can make changes to your payroll two ways depending on which is best for you.
Report your payroll estimate information via telephone by calling our Assessment Services Department.
Within Winnipeg: 204-954-4505
Toll free: 1-855-954-4321 ext. 4505
You can also report your payroll estimate information via email through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, you are not able to change your payroll estimate online at this time.
If you are on a payment instalment plan, the WCB will recalculate your premium estimate right away. The new estimate will appear on your account statement within one month of the change.
It’s important to update your payroll information because your premiums are based on this number. If your payroll increases, your premium and payments will increase. If your payroll decreases, your premium and payments will also decrease.
Interest may be added if you underestimate your payroll amount.
