If you operate a seasonal business, you don't need to close your WCB account at the end of your season. There's no cost to keeping your account open year-round, and you'll benefit from:
- less paperwork and administrative requirements;
- potential rate decreases depending on your claim experience; and
- an active account status that remains in good standing through the WCB Clearance system if you're an independent contractor.
In addition, the WCB offers flexible payment options to accommodate the needs of seasonal businesses.
