7/20/17 -Employers, Are You in Compliance with the Law?

Act 91 of 2015 mandated that all member employers of APERS submit all compensation & service reports AND remit all required contributions electronically by July 1, 2017. To allow employers to adjust to the new reporting requirements, we temporarily suspended penalties and interest. APERS will continue the “grace period” of no late report penalties for the remainder of July. Starting August 1, 2017, APERS will resume penalties and interest on each late submission. Initially, a report or payment will be deemed late ten days after payroll end-date. By the end of the calendar year, that period will be shortened to five days to conform with regulations.

If you are having technical difficulties complying with Act 91, please call Ms. Shelly George, Supervisor of Employer Services, at 501-682-7821 and she will get you fixed up.

Don’t subject your employer to unnecessary late penalties and interest!
