Regulatory Compliance Review
Many HR functions are highly regulated. Failure to comply with legal requirements can lead to significant penalties and fines, and could even result in lawsuits, which are costly to defend and even more costly if lost. We can take an in-depth look at your business to identify the health of the HR policies, practices, and procedures within your organization.

Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has resulted in major changes that have affected employers. In general, any entity that provides minimum essential health coverage to its employees must report that coverage to the employees and to the IRS to verify that they are complying with the mandate.
One of the important forms that large employers (50 or more full-time employees) need to submit is the 1095-C: Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage.
If the thought of completing this process seems daunting, we can help. Our Form 1095-C preparation services can streamline the process and take care of the filing for you.
More Information on Form 1095-C
What organizations have to file Form 1095-C?
Applicable large employers (ALEs) that had 50 or more employees during the prior year are required to file Form 1095-C. And if you will be filing more than 250 returns, you must file electronically through the ACA Information Reports system.
What do you need to report?
ALEs need to report information about what type of healthcare coverage, if any, they offered to their full-time employees for each month of the year. Using indicator codes, as described by the IRS, employers must provide data on each individual employee’s coverage.
If an employer does not offer Minimum Essential Coverage, as defined by the Affordable Care Act, the employer may be subject to a penalty called the Employer Shared Responsibility Payment.
Form 1095-C specifically requests:
- The employee’s name, address and social security number
- The employer’s name, address and EIN
- The indicator code for the type of coverage offered
- The employee share of lowest cost monthly premium, for self-only minimum value coverage
- Applicable Section 4980H Safe Harbor code (if applicable)
If the employer’s plan is self-insured, each covered employee’s name, social security number (or date of birth), and months of coverage must be reported.
