It's no secret that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) includes a range of measures impacting small businesses. Depending on whether you are self-employed, an employer with fewer than 25 employees, an employer with fewer than 50 employees, or an employer with 50 or more employees, different provisions of the Affordable Care Act may apply to you. The Small Business Administration (SBA) and Small Business Majority have launched the Affordable Care Act 101 weekly webinar series, which will take place every Thursday from now through the opening of the marketplaces in October. This free series will focus on both federal and state provisions to help small business owners understand the basics of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for their company and employees, including information on:
- Small business tax credits (available to businesses and tax-exempt non-profits)— who’s eligible for them and how to claim them
- Marketplace updates
- Shared responsibility
- Cost containment
- Tools and resources available for small businesses interested in learning more about the law
A question and answer period will follow each webinar. Click here to register for the upcoming presentations.
