CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen) audits more than 2,950 employee benefit plans across the country, so we understand the challenges the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) reporting requirements bring to organizations. Whether you need help preparing and filing a specific form, or you want to explore options for implementation, we’re here to help.

What our clients say about us

Our group of three hotels and more than 200 employees recently had its first experience with the Affordable Care Act. The initial IRS ACA claim was considerably greater than what we had planned for.

We immediately contacted the ACA team at CLA, and they imported our employee data directly into their system, saving us both staffing and monetary resources. Even though we had less than 30 days to respond, CLA reviewed all documentation, made corrections to our 1094-C and 1095-C submissions, and made it possible for our group to respond to the IRS within two weeks.

After this experience, we transferred the responsibility for all future ACA data submissions to the team at CLA. Thanks to CLA, for the first time in four years, the board of managers feel confident about how to handle future ACA issues.

“In the last several years Otterbein has expanded their number of locations and services provided. As a result, we added more than 700 employees to the team. When it came time to file government-required 1095 benefit forms and to conform to new ACA processes, the task was overwhelming. We needed help.

“Many of the firms we turned to failed to understand our issues and demanded we sign up for services we already successfully managed. CLA listened to our needs and offered us the exact service we needed right from the outset. Otterbein had two weeks to meet the deadline, but CLA professionals proved flexible and jumped right in to meet the challenge. CLA even imported Otterbein data directly into its system, saving us both staffing and monetary resources. I heartily endorse CLA and the people it can provide to ‘get the job done.’”

"I’ve been with Bashas’ for 25 years, and in that time I’ve worked with quite a few firms to complete our benefits audits. I can confidently say that CLA has the cleanest process of them all. ACA reporting means unavoidably gathering data over time. With CLA, our work stops there, and we can trust that the rest is taken care of. Their team reviews our data quickly, lets us know of any issues, and has shown the expertise to remedy anything that pops up along the way. That’s no small task when working with an organization of more than eight-thousand employees, and we look forward to coming back to them for our ACA reporting needs in the future."
