Employers who renew their policy online will be able to get a better understanding of the factors that influence their premium calculation, through our policy snapshot page. By declaring your wages online, you’ll be able to easily see any discounts you may be benefiting from, compare your claims performance to the industry average, and see how changes to key factors (such as wages or industry rate) have influenced your premium.
Your certificate of currency will be attached to your renewal notice that we email to you in early July. If you don’t receive electronic communications from us, or you need another copy throughout the year, you can go online at any time to obtain your certificate of currency.
Queensland employers can continue to enjoy one of the lowest average premium rates in the nation of $1.20 per $100 in wages.
