How long does the process take?

In tracking our customer experiences, most users are done in a couple of days. Although, a well organized and diligent user can get through the process in just a few hours. Please be mindful there are multiple factors that influence the timing including data gathering, quality of data, volume of requests on our end and a quality review of final forms. Use our data prep sheet and template as resources to prepare.

What does it mean to be aggregated?

Employer aggregation for ACA reporting purposes is relevant when multiple companies have common ownership. This is called a “controlled group”. While some corporate structures are simple enough to allow the determination of controlled group status to be made relatively easily, in other cases the complex web of ownership requires a deep dive into the facts and circumstances. ACA Reporting Service will allows defer to the employers legal counsel in making this determination.

Do I need to report?

This reporting is for employers with 50 or more full time employees including FTEs in compliance with the IRS employer mandate. Level funded or self insured employers under 50 FTEs are required to file 1095B forms.

What are the data requirements?
