Attendance on Demand's New Product – VisualACA Helps Employers Meet New IRS Filing Deadlines
IRS 1094-C and 1095-C Reporting Made Easy
(February 2016) — While the IRS has extended the filing deadlines for ACA reporting, the IRS is encouraging employers to file "as soon as they are ready." Attendance on Demand has launched a new product for ACA reporting to help employers meet compliance obligations.
Employers subject to the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) 2015 reporting requirements now have extra time to file. The IRS extended these reporting deadlines roughly two months from the original dates. However, the IRS is encouraging employers to file "as soon as they are ready," even as early as January.
|Filing Activity||Previous Deadline||Extended Deadline|
|Deadline to distribute forms to employees||February 1, 2016||March 31, 2016|
|Deadline to file forms with the IRS||February 29, 2016 (paper)

Attendance on Demand, Inc. has launched a new product for ACA reporting: VisualACA. VisualACA eliminates the guesswork, calculates the data, and connects you to a hassle-free printing and filing service to meet IRS reporting requirements under the Affordable Care Act.
"Employers still need to find reporting solutions and are still unclear about their ACA reporting strategy," said Beth Baerman, Director of Communication at Attendance on Demand, Inc. "VisualACA can help remove the burden of ACA reporting. It also automates status determination, and ongoing evaluation of variable hour employees."
VisualACA has a Guidance feature that looks at the employee's service hours in the measurement period and then calculates a Guidance value--the number of hours the employee can work going forward each week or month to maintain the desired ACA status. Companies can be liable for benefit or penalty costs under ACA when part-time employees become full-time.
VisualACA assists companies in all industries with managing
compliance for the Affordable Care Act. It works either with
Attendance on Demand or as a standalone system.
