WCB Nova Scotia partners with Province to defer employer premiums until July, 2020 (Mar 20/20)

WCB Nova Scotia is committed to doing our part to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on Nova Scotians. Working in partnership with the Government of Nova Scotia, we will defer all employer premium payments for three months. Late fees and interest will not be charged until further notice.

This temporary change means that covered employers will not have to worry about paying WCB premiums until July. 

Employers pay premiums to the WCB on a wide range of payment frequencies. Today’s announcement means that for all employers, no payments for WCB premiums are due until July 2020. Late payment and interest are deferred. 

While those premiums will accrue, they do not need to be paid, and interest and late payment fees will be waived until further notice.
