Applicable large employers subject to the Employer Shared Responsibility (ESR) provisions should report this information on Form 1094-C and Form 1095-C, while employers not subject to the ESR provisions should use Form 1094-B and Form 1095-B.

The information will be reported for the first time on 2015 forms due in early 2016.
