Workers compensation insurance payable

Workers compensation insurance payable is a liability account that contains the unpaid amount of premiums owed by an employer to its workers compensation insurance provider. This account is classified as a current liability, since the liabilities it contains are typically due and payable in less than one year. The balance in this account tends to be low, since workers compensation insurance is typically payable in advance of the period to which it applies.
