The Canada Revenue Agency and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board have teamed up to make paying WSIB premiums easier for businesses in Ontario. Both organizations are making things simpler and saving time by letting businesses pay their premiums through the CRA’s ‘My Business’ online portal. This teamwork shows how working together can improve and simplify things for everyone.

Simplifying Premium Payments

Paying WSIB premiums used to be a big hassle. Businesses had to deal with different systems and forms, taking up much time. But thanks to the CRA and WSIB working together, businesses can now pay their WSIB premiums through the CRA’s online portal. This means businesses can handle their premium payments where they manage their taxes. It’s like a one-stop shop that saves time and stress.
