We were recently notified by OEA (Office of the Employer Advisor, Nova Scotia Society) regarding the Statement of Account (Remittance Payment) dated December 25, 2016 from WCB, which has a due date of January 15, 2017.
The statements are incorrectly asking employers to calculate the premium due, using the 2017 maximum assessable wage, rather than the 2016 max. This results in employers potentially overpaying their premium remittance on January 15, (if they haven’t already paid).
The WCB is aware of this issue and have indicated they will correct the error on the next Statement of Account.
If you have any questions, please contact:
Executive Director, OEA
