The Workers Compensation feature can only track your premiums from the time
you begin using the feature. There is no way to enter "year-to-date"
information for your workers compensation premiums.
If you start using the feature in the middle of your insurance year, you
will have to combine the information QuickBooks tracks for you with the
information you tracked outside of QuickBooks before you started using the
feature, in order to get the full picture of your workers compensation
obligations for your insurance year.
Let's say your workers compensation insurance policy begins on August 1
and ends on July 31. Now let's say you begin using the Workers Compensation
feature in QuickBooks on November 1.
At the end of the year, on July 31, when you need to assemble a complete
picture of your accrued premiums for the year, you will need to run a Workers
Compensation Summary report for November 1 to July 31 and combine that data
with the information you tracked manually from August 1 to October 31, in order
to get the full picture.
