Helping You To Deliver on the Affordable Care Act

CS Professional Suite Accounting & Auditing Solutions December 11, 2015

We understand that it’s challenging to collect information, report and keep large employers in compliance with the Affordable Care Act. We strive to provide you with the best tools available for efficient gathering of data from your client’s medical benefit provider and features to streamline the data entry to be entered in Parts II and III of Form 1095-C. For payroll clients mandated to report, you can process Forms 1095-C and 1094-C—plus, Accounting CS provides a template spreadsheet to send to your client’s benefit provider that you can easily import back into Accounting CS once completed.

The template spreadsheet file is available for you to download and send to the benefit provider to populate with the employees’ information. The columns of this template spreadsheet correspond with the 1095-C Sample template available in the Spreadsheet Import Wizard within Accounting CS. Click here to download the 1095-C employee template spreadsheet.

For information on how to use this spreadsheet once populated, instructions are available here.

For IRS guidance on how to complete Form 1094-C, Transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Returns, and Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, see the Employer Information Reporting FAQs for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C featured on the IRS website.

For current users of Accounting CS, additional Affordable Care Act setup and instructions are available in the Help & How-To Center.
