As a small business owner, you already have a lot to think about with running your business. Adding additional compliance responsibilities like the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and knowing what you have to do—and when—can be challenging.

To help you understand the impact of ACA compliance for small businesses and what you are required to do and file, I'll be publishing a series of blog posts on ACA compliance for small businesses. There is a lot to cover on the ACA, but in this blog series I'll try to boil it down to the most important issues and the topics relevant to small businesses.

Over the next several weeks, I will be publishing six posts in which I'll cover:

  • Components of the ACA that apply to small businesses
  • The Small Business Health Care Tax Credit and how to know whether you qualify
  • The Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) marketplace
  • New ACA IRS reporting requirements
  • The Employer Mandate and what it means for you
  • Exchange notices

Hopefully we can boost your knowledge of the ACA, including health insurance reforms, small business requirements, how it applies to you, educate you on what small businesses need to do, and help you prepare for IRS reporting requirements and ACA compliance for small businesses.

Subscribe to this site, Thrive Powered by ADPSM, and look for our first post on components of the ACA that apply to small businesses later this week. Also, check out the Health Care Reform page for the latest ACA rules, regulations, and requirements.
