Unemployment Liability

When you purchase a business, the Connecticut Department of Labor states that the purchaser of the existing business will become a full or part successor of the previous employer's unemployment liabilities.  When registering for the unemployment insurance tax, (UC-1A) you will need to know this information about the company you are purchasing:

  • If you be acquiring all or part of the employees, assets, organization, trade name and business of the previous employer
  • The current Trade Name of the business
  • Name and address of previous employer
  • Previous employer's registration number
  • Whether or not the employer remain in business in Connecticut
