ACA Reporting and Compliance – getting ready.

ACA Reporting and Compliance – getting ready.

The new reporting requirements that come with the Affordable Care Act are more than some employers would like to deal with alone and in-house.  This upcoming filing year will be the first reporting year where it is mandatory to file the 1095 form series so being prepared and getting a solution in place should be a top consideration for employers.

According to a survey conducted among 480 employers in 36 industries only 10% have in-house OR outsourced solution in place. Sixteen percent of survey participants reported that they have not yet even considered a solution, or do not know what solutions they should consider.

For employers, the basics of Affordable Care Act compliance includes payroll data collection, subject-matter consulting, form distribution and electronic filing. This reporting applies to all employers with more than 50 full-time employees.  Last year ACA reporting was voluntary and was used as a trial run but now, the pressure is real.  More importantly are the substantial penalties assessed for non-compliance. For 2015 if coverage is not offered to at least 70% of employees of an Applicable Large Employer (ALE) the employer is subject to a 2,000 dollar penalty per employee.  For the following tax year (year 2 that ACA is mandatory) all ALEs must offer affordable coverage to 95% of its workforce.

Not many vendors have an Affordable Care Act solution in place and those who do are very expensive.  Here at Tab Service Company we have built out tax processing application to include the 1095 series.
