SBA to offer affordable care webinars

— The U.S. Small Business Administration and Small Business Majority have teamed up for a free webinar series in which small business owners can learn the basics of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for their business and employees.

Webinar content will generally be the same each week and a question and answer period will follow.

The webinars pay attention to both federal and state provisions to help local small business owners understand how the law affects them.

Topics include:

- 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

“As key dates are coming up in the ACA implementation calendar, SBA is here to help small businesses and their advisors understand every aspect of the law as it affects them,” states Judy McCauley, director of the West Virginia District Office of the SBA. “There have been and continue to be changes of which are addressed in these free seminars.”

Webinars are scheduled Sept. 5, 12, 19 and 26, beginning at 2 p.m. each day
