Flex Prepares Employers for Looming ACA Reporting

Free webinar boils down the issues businesses may be facing.

ROSEMONT, Ill. (February 29, 2016) – Flexible Benefit Service Corporation (Flex) is providing a free, live webinar to ease confusion surrounding the initial year of the mandatory Affordable Care Act (ACA)  employer reporting. Outlined in sections 6055 and 6056 of the Internal Revenue Code, most large employers and some smaller employers must comply with these reporting requirements by furnishing the IRS with information regarding their employer-sponsored health care coverage.

The event titled ACA Reporting: Simplifying the Complex will be held on March 2, 2016 at 11:00 AM Central and is pre-authorized for 1 general HRCI recertification credit hour and 1 SHRM Professional Development Credit (PDC). Flex invites Human Resource, business and benefits professionals to attend to learn which forms to complete, which codes to use and what can be expected with the new deadlines. Moreover, Flex’s webinar will make things easier for businesses who are under pressure by including illustrative examples on how the reporting forms should be completed.

“The proactive effort from employers who learn how to properly fulfill the ACA reporting requirement will be rewarded when the IRS begins to dole out penalties,” said David Lindgren, Flex Senior Manager, Compliance and Public Affairs. “Clarifying the IRS’ to-do list gets the ball rolling for hesitant and ill-advised businesses.”

David Lindgren, presenter of the March 2nd event is a subject matter expert in the areas of ERISA, HIPAA, ACA, Cafeteria Plans and various Employee Benefit Programs. He also is a frequent speaker at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual Conference and other regional SHRM conferences.
