See below Stage-By-Stage: What We Do >
Our goal is always to free employers from all the resource burdens, costly errors, and other headaches of ACA reporting & compliance while also making the best use of their existing ERP systems.
The biggest and most costly of all ACA headaches are IRS penalties. We use our unrivalled experience and smart ACAPro technology to catch potential penalties early and manage risk proactively. As BenefitScape Founder Kim Phillips puts it: No more ACA headaches or IRS penalties. No year-end scramble. More benefit from benefits for both your employees and your business.
Many employers choose to outsource their entire ACA reporting & compliance process to BenefitScape – from hours tracking and calculating eligibility through IRS coding and all employee communications to the final IRS e-filing.
A key benefit of end-to-end outsourcing to BenefitScape is maximum accuracy and proactive risk management throughout the reporting & compliance process, including the monthly streaming & analysis of data to flag and eradicate potential IRS penalties or other errors and issues well before e-filing.
This end-to-end service concludes with delivery to the employer of a Final Digital Package containing all critical project data and artifacts, including final IRS and state transmission receipts. This data is also securely archived by BenefitScape to provide the employer with future forensic support if required of full and accurate ACA compliance.
. . . OR FILL THE GAPS & TROUBLE-SHOOT
Thanks to the flexibility of BenefitScape's operations and ACAPro technology, all the individual tasks that make up our end-to-end outsourcing service can also be delivered to employers as Stand-Alone ACA Services.
Employers use these Stand-Alone ACA Services to fill gaps within any stage of their ACA reporting and compliance process or as trouble-shooting services, including our Free ACA Audit.
BenefitScape's Stand-Alone ACA Services include Risk Mitigation, Penalty Remediation, certified e-filing, trouble-shooting diagnostics, and all other individual tasks outlined Stage-By-Stage below. They are used by employers either individually or in any combination that works for them.
As the leading specialists, we make ACA compliance & reporting far simpler, more cost-efficient & more accurate for all employers.
LET'S WORK TOGETHER.
