each employer's subsidiary contribution shall be the percentage shown in
the column headed by the general account balance as of the computation

percentages in which an individual employer's account is found. The
subsidiary rate for employers who have not been liable for contributions
during at least the five completed calendar quarters ending on the
computation date shall be the highest percentage for those employers
with a positive employer's account percentage. Such subsidiary
contribution shall be paid in addition to any other amounts otherwise
payable under this article, and shall be assessed and collected in the
same manner as the contributions prescribed by section five hundred
seventy of this title. The proceeds of the subsidiary contribution shall
be deposited in the fund and credited to the general account.

(ii) The terms "employer account percentage", "computation date" and
"wages" shall have the meaning prescribed pursuant to article eighteen
