When a competent epidemiologist determines the need for isolation of persons suspected of having developed the disease or spreading the infection, they are immediately sent to isolation. It is obligatory to inform the chosen doctor by telephone or by e-mail issuing the report on sick leave (remittance). As people in isolation are not able to directly download the report and submit it to the CIHI, neither the Salary Certificate and the claim for payment of benefits, they are exceptionally enabled to submit the necessary documentation electronically, which the CIHI receives through the central health information system. The CIHI will ask the employer for a salary certificate formally. The compensation is determined on the basis of the determined price of the working hour according to the Salary Certificate of 100%. The compensation is paid to the CIHI funds directly into the account of the insured person.

The acquisition of one’s own business stakes results in a change in the ownership structure, but also in a decrease of the capital, which is replaced by reserves. Upon the acquisition of business stakes and their reselling the provisions of the Companies Act, standards and tax regulations should be taken into account. If one's own business stake is not sold to the existing members of the company, it can be sold on the market to third parties. The sale may result in a capital gain (sales value greater than cost) or a capital loss (sales value less than cost). Capital gains or losses are recorded within the equity and do not affect taxation. After the sale of one’s own business stake, the resulted reserves are cancelled in favour of retained earnings, but before that the capital loss should be "covered" if it was incurred during the sale. Repurchased business interests may be paid in cash or in the assets of the company, whereby the assets of the company are sold to the owner of the business unit, resulting in the offsetting of mutual debts and receivables. In the case of such transactions attention should be paid to the tax position of the assets being sold.
In the public procurement system, in accordance with the legal obligations, direct payment is made to subcontractors. Although it should be paid directly to subcontractors that are part of the procurement process, the overall obligation is approved to the contractor. Reclassification of the prior period expenditures should not be carried out through a group of accounts showing changes in the value and volume of assets and liabilities.
In the general ledger accounts, non-profit organizations also record changes regarding the replacement of assets that were originally approved by the source of ownership, including the increase in company capital from the share in the profits of that company. No claims are made on the replacement of assets, and if assets which are counterbalanced in the balance sheet are replaced, such a fact should be correspondingly taken into account. If the equity of the company in which the non-profit organisation holds stakes is increased, revenue must accordingly be reported.

The net compensation may be paid in kind.
