ACA Best Practices: Avoiding IRS penalties – Why Acting Now Can Save You Penalty Dollars Later

Your Forms 1095-C are likely filed and will now be used by the IRS to assess penalties for failing to comply with the Employer Shared Responsibility mandate of the ACA. That’s one MAJOR penalty opportunity scratched off the list. But before you see that assessment, there is a trigger happening now that can alert you to a potential problem: a Marketplace Notice. Early intervention is key when it comes to Marketplace Notices. The sooner you respond, the better chance you have of minimizing their impact. When you receive a Marketplace Notice, it can be concerning – and rightly so knowing they can lead to paperwork and fines depending on the health coverage offered to your full-time employees. If you understand the implications of receiving a notice, you can be ready to handle the situation in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. But first things first: do you know what this notice is? Will your locations know it if they receive one? And what should you do with it?...

From Hire to Retire to Compliance? ADP’s CFO on Why Compliance Has Never Been More Important

If it seems like there are a lot of new regulations lately, you’re right. Last year alone, the U.S. Federal Register logged 3,378 final rules and regulations, from the IRS, FLSA and DOL. And many of these regulations impact businesses – and specifically touch at least one aspect of the “hire-to-retire” spectrum. In other words, if your job description includes payroll tax, employment verification services, wage garnishments or benefits administration, your job description should also include compliance. Despite the increasing volume of regulations and potential impact on businesses, there is still a lack of action, and in some cases, understanding, on what needs to be done to comply. Consider these stats: According to ADP research, only 25 percent of small businesses and 50 percent of midsized business are aware of new federal overtime requirements, which are currently set to go into effect on December 1, 2016 via FLSA. For ACA, the ADP Employer Confidence Report found that more than half of midsized companies (52%) and nearly half of large...

Winning the War for Talent: BDG CPAs Shares their Challenge – and Their Insight

Maria Black

“You feel that, when your head hits the pillow, you’re doing the best by your employees.” –Neil Della Torre, Founding Partner, BDG CPAs. The accounting profession, like many industries, is currently undergoing a “workforce revolution” where many in firm leadership are taking a close look at their culture and employee engagement techniques. Why? Because they recognize the critical need to combat an industry talent shortage driven by a steady stream of retiring Baby Boomers exiting the accounting business. To fill the void, CPA firms like Becher, Della Torre, Gitto & Company are looking to attract Millennial talent. But we are seeing that the priorities and values most important to this rapidly changing workforce have shifted substantially. Specifically, the demands of Millennial employees have moved away from high salaries to priorities such as work/life balance and benefits that are offered. “Our firm model is to recruit students that could go with a ‘Big Four’ firm. ADP TotalSource® makes our firm more competitive in the market place for staff accountants as...

Payroll as Pain vs. Payroll as Pleasure: A Chat with Andrews and Company

Ask any business owner and you may find that one of the first things they did when starting their business was retain the services of an accountant. Such a partner isn’t there just to help with taxes, but to serve as a trusted advisor who can provide solid advice on managing cash flow, planning for growth, assessing risk and, in many cases, helping with payroll and other HR activities. Because of the advisory nature of their relationship with clients, accountants today have a lot more on their plates than they ever did before. In fact, with the onset of the Affordable Care Act, recent changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act, and ever-changing payroll regulations, I’m seeing that many more small to midsized accounting firms (with five to 15 employees) are thinking about referring out their payroll business or stepping away from offering payroll services completely. The reasons they’re citing? Lack of time and the complexities of keeping up with payroll tax changes and other related compliance issues. Accountant...

Everest Report Has ADP Beaming with Benefits Pride

Benefits administration is enormously complex. A successful enrollment requires surgical precision and careful coordination of multiple sources of data from multiple systems. Organizations need to understand hundreds of intricate eligibility and enrollment rules and infinite combinations of rate structures to successfully manage the daily events that are today’s Benefits offerings. Getting it wrong creates exposure to financial and compliance risk, and now, more than ever, employee dissatisfaction. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) in particular has brought continued focus on the complexities of managing Benefits, leading many businesses to seek outside expertise. In addition, as organizations look for a competitive edge, offering a broader and more varied array of Health, Wellness, Financial and Lifestyle Benefits is emerging as away to attract and retain the best talent. The additional complexity caused by the increased number of Benefit offerings and the associated burden of connecting to multiple carriers and reconciling deductions to payroll has driven the increased interest in Benefits Administration Outsourcing (BAO). According to the Everest Group’s Anil Vijayan, the BAO...

Should You Focus on Meaningful Work to Attract and Keep Top Employees?

According to ADP Research Institute’s® report, The Evolution of Work: The Changing Nature of the Global Workforce, one of the top 19 workplace trends in the coming years will be people choosing to “spend their time working on things that are of personal interest to them or have a broader impact on society,” and an overwhelming 81 percent of employees view that trend in a positive light.
