PR ACA Process Form

Available only for companies where the Default Country (HQ Company Setup) is set to US.

Use this form to manually collect and track payroll and health insurance data necessary to generate federally mandated reports under the United States Affordable Care Act (ACA). You can also access the PR ACA Initialize form from the PR ACA Process form to enter this data automatically.

Note: Users should be familiar with IRS definitions and requirements for ACA reporting before using Vista to enter ACA data and generate reports. For more information, visit the Internal Revenue Service website at and search for "Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C".

PR ACA Process fields are initially populated from the corresponding record in HQ Company Setup. PR ACA 1095-C Employee data defaults from PR Employees. These defaults represent the PR company state at the time that the PR ACA Process record was created. Edit any of these fields, if necessary.

Note: Once you set up employer and employee data, you must use Aatrix to create and submit 1095-Cs and 1094-Cs, as well as 1095-Bs and 1094-Bs. For more information, see Create, Print, and E-File 1094s and 1095s Using Aatrix .

The Transmission History tab shows the history of electronic transmissions. Information includes the transmission type (Original, Correction, Replacement, or Test), date the transmission was generated, the transmitter control number, receipt ID, and transmission status (Pending, Accepted, Accepted with Errors, and Rejected, Not Filed).The status of a transmission determines the ability to correct or replace an electronic file. For example, to replace an electronic file, the status must be set to Rejected; correction files must have a status of Accepted with Errors. For more information about transmission status, see the F1 help.

Note: Beginning December 2021, printing and eFiling of 1094s and 1095s must be done via Aatrix. Aatrix does not send data back to Vista, and will therefore not update the Transmission History tab. This tab remains only for the purpose of maintaining prior transmission history.
