Word of mouth and referrals are a great (and free) way to advertise your business and get new clientele; they also build a company’s trustworthiness and credibility.

We are excited to announce the newest release for our Onboarding feature. Newly hired employees will now have the ability to set up their direct deposit information while going through the Onboarding process.
The first step you must take in regards to ACA is simply to determine whether or not you’re required to file. Typically, those companies who have 50 or more full-time equivalent (FTE) employees must file their 1094s and 1095s, as they are considered an applicable large employer (ALE). Whether or not you are self-funded or fully insured will alter the filing procedure somewhat. The flowchart below will assist you in deciding if you are required to file.
