Why is Payroll Is Important to California Workers Compensation Insurance

One of the best things to happen to California Workers Compensation is, the way that worker’s compensation is sold and the way payroll is reported. In the past you had to estimate your payroll. That was O.K. if your payroll was exactly the same every year. They would audit your business at the end of the year to determine if what you estimated, matched what you actually did. That was great if the estimate and the actual, matched at the end of the year! However, if you had a lot of Payroll growth and your estimate was too low for what you actually did at the end of that year, you had the insurance company sending you a bill for the difference!
