How do I...

Apply for Employer Health Tax Funding Assistance?

The Employer Health Tax (EHT) is a new statutory tax effective January 1, 2019 that applies to all salaries and taxable benefits paid through UVic as paymaster.  Faculty members who employ grant-funded employees will need to incorporate an additional 1.95% into their budget planning.

A limited fund has been established to assist faculty members who employ grant-funded employees, where the EHT causes financial hardship in the short term (primarily for the last quarter of the 2018-19 fiscal year).

To apply for funding assistance, faculty members should complete the EHT Funding Assistance Request Form and submit to the Office of Research Services no later than April 30, 2019.  Such requests are subject to the availability of funds and FAST account information will be verified.
