BenefitScape® brings BPaaS-ACA to Affordable Care Act Reporting and IRS Filing

“…Compliance is more than having the correct data.” – Ken Phillips

Affordable Care Act (ACA) Reporting and IRS filing for Tax Year 2017 is only months away. Applicable large employers will be required to distribute a Form 1095 to each eligible employee on January 31, 2018 and then file this information with the IRS.

BenefitScape is proud to announce that we are providing several ACA-necessary Business Processes as a Service (BPaaS) over the Internet via a web browser. BPaaS-ACA, the new cloud-based feature, enables employers to obtain all the necessary services (data verification, printing, efiling, penalty assessment, corrections etc.) that are required for accurate and complete ACA Compliance.

In many cases these features exceed and are more far-reaching than those available in system software modules. Each function operates in concert with one another and is designed to ensure penalty free compliance.
