WHAT IS INSURED IN PAYROLL?
The expenses that are typically included in the definition of Payroll or, in some policies, Wages are:
- Payroll tax
- Fringe Benefits Tax
- Holiday pay
- Sick pay
- Workers’ compensation insurance premiums and/or accident compensation levies
- Superannuation and pension fund contributions
- Long service leave, and the like
Policies do vary in what falls within the definition, and it is necessary to take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the definition of Wages or Payroll under the policy you are considering, to ensure that all costs are captured. Failure to do so could lead to an under-insurance problem in the event of a loss.
