How the Workers Compensation feature works

Setting up the Workers Compensation feature before you run a payroll

First, you need to set up the Workers Compensation feature using the Workers Compensation Setup wizard. This wizard helps you assign default workers compensation codes to employees, decide whether you want to exclude overtime premiums from workers compensation premium calculations, and enter an experience modification factor, if you have one.

Premiums accrue as you write paychecks

Then, each time you write a paycheck, QuickBooks accrues workers compensation premiums for each earnings item that has a workers compensation code assigned to it. If you assigned a default code to an employee in the workers compensation setup, QuickBooks automatically assigns that code to the employee's earnings items on their paychecks.

To see how much workers compensation accrues on each paycheck, look for Workers Compensation in the Company Summary portion of the Preview Paycheck window.

Finding out how much you owe and paying your premiums

When you want to find out how much you have accrued in workers compensation premiums, you can run a workers compensation summary report.

Since your workers compensation premiums accrue as payroll liabilities, when it comes time to pay your premiums, you will use the Pay Liabilities window to create a payroll liability check.
