Each employer's contri- bution rate for each subsequent year or part thereof shall be calcu- lated on the basis of his records filed with the Board and benefit payments disbursed through the applicable computation date."

"(b) The successor, if not already subject to this section, shall become an 'employer' subject hereto on the date of such transfer, and shall accordingly become liable for contributions hereunder from and after said date. "(c) The successor shall take over and continue the employer's account, including its reserve and all other aspects of its experience under this section, in proportion to the pay roll or employees assign- able to the transferred business as determined for the purposes of this section by the Board.
