Are you feeling overwhelmed by the complexities of the Affordable Care Act?
First of all, you are not alone!
If you need software for management & reporting, look no further than the ACA Management Tool®.
With the ACA Management Tool® on your side, you don’t have to feel overwhelmed anymore.
ACA Management Tool® is here to help. ACA GPS developed it to be the best in the industry. You’re probably already using a payroll, scheduling, or human resource information systems software to keep up with your employee records, right? Integrating with the ACA Management Tool® is easy. After a few simple uploads, you can quickly and easily determine Applicable Large Employer Status. You’ll also know which employees qualify for coverage. You can then make offers and document responses, and generate the necessary IRS forms for reporting.
New regulation means new IRS forms
In 2014, the IRS and Treasury issued final regulations on the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions under section 4980H of the Internal Revenue Code. Under IRC §6055 and §6056, new forms must be filed with the IRS. These forms are the 1094-B & 1095-B or 1094-C & 1095-C.
NOW is the time
If you have 50 or more Full Time Employees (or Full Time Equivalents) you need to be ready to report to the IRS in early 2017. You should be tracking the information needed for those reports NOW. (Employers that had 50-99 employees in 2014 & were exempt from assessable payments in 2015, that transition relief does not apply for 2016. These employers will need to report to the IRS in early 2017!)
The deadlines for Tax Year 2016 reporting are:
Form 1095 postmarked to employee or responsible individual: March 2, 2017
IRS filing deadline – mailing: (employers filing less than 250 forms): February 28, 2017
IRS filing deadline – electronic: March 31, 2017
Your options are “Pay” or “Play”
Under the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions, if employers do not offer affordable health coverage that provides a minimum level of coverage to their full-time employees (and their dependents), the employer may be subject to an Employer Shared Responsibility payment if at least one of its full-time employees receives a premium tax credit for purchasing individual coverage on one of the new Affordable Insurance Exchanges, also called a Health Insurance Marketplace.
