As a small business owner, you've already got to worry about everything from inventory and advertising to hiring and firing. And now that Obamacare is in full effect, that's just one more pan in your ever-more-crowded fire. Two provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) only apply if you're an "applicable large employers" (ALE). So how do you determine if you're an ALE? And how do you comply with the ACA if you are?
ACA deadlines are fast-approaching (the 2015 Form 1095-C, Employer Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, is due March 31), the mandatory IRS forms can be complicated, and the information required is extensive. So if your small business has more than 50 full-time employees, you've got a lot of questions to answer. Luckily, you don't have to answer them alone: a new special report from Thomson Reuters Checkpoint can help. (Disclaimer, Thomson Reuters is the parent company of FindLaw.)
