A Word from Our CEO: October 2015
It is starting to get cold and winter is coming. As we get into the last quarter and towards the end of the calendar year, the most trending question is about who needs to file for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). There seems to be a lot of confusion. Our analysts have done their homework and come up with what they believe are the correct guidelines for small to medium businesses:
"Employers who have more than 50 employees and Self-Insured
Employers are required to send Form 1095-C to all Employees
and the corresponding Form 1094-C to the IRS."
The good news is that many of our small business customers are not required to do anything related to the ACA. For those that do, CheckMark is in the process of creating a 1095 application that will facilitate in printing and filing these forms on paper or electronically. Please let us know if you have a need.
I am happy to tell you that CheckMark has completed our 31 years serving customers like you and we are tirelessly working to innovate and further develop our flagship products that assist you in your business.
I am also delighted to inform you that CheckMark Payroll Software has been included among the Top 10 Payroll Softwares in the US by HR Tech Outlook Magazine. We are very thankful to all of you without whom this would have been impossible.
Last but not the least, the 2016 versions and updates of our flagship products CheckMark Payroll, MultiLedger, and 1099 software are ready. We have tried to make your year-end processes easy and the transition to the New Year as smooth as possible.
As always, please send me your feedback and your occasional complain. I love hearing from you and knowing what is on your mind.
With warm wishes for a joyous and prosperous holiday season.
President and CEO
