Preparing for the New 1099 Requirements for B2B Transactions

July 30th, 2010 :: Steven Fisher

If you are in business for yourself it is safe to say that you probably utilize sub-contractors for your own business or for a client project. In the past it was pretty straightforward - if the person was not a corporation, they were a 1099 contractor. Company to company or B2B transactions were filed with the IRS through an I-9 form but that was pretty much it.

New regulations (don’t you just love them?) have mandated that all B2B transaction must be filed with a 1099 form. Section 9006 of the massive Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act will mean yet another huge paperwork burden for your small business. I wanted to thank Bobbie Lee who wrote this great article on Entrepreneur.com on the details buried in the new Healthcare legislation.

Here are some excerpts:

“Beginning in 2012, all businesses will be required to prepare 1099s for all services and goods purchased from all vendors in excess of $600. Current law dictates that only services provided in excess of $600 must be reported via form 1099 and that corporations (with the exception of attorneys) are exempt from receiving 1099s.”

“Beginning in 2012, corporations will no longer be exempt, and purchases of goods must also be included. The passing of this legislation is an attempt by the government to close the $300 billion tax gap, which will help pay for health-care reform. So I guess it indirectly relates to the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act in which it was included.”

Depending on the industry, many businesses must collect, report and pay over a variety of excise taxes, as well. How much does all that cost your business in bookkeeping and payroll preparation fees? Now business owners must report all business-to-business transactions. So purchases your business makes from Staples, Office Depot and other vendors are included as reportable transactions.”

    In 2012, the health care reform law will require ALL businesses, governments and charities to issue 1099 forms to vendors they pay over $600 for goods and services. This will undoubtedly financially crush thousands of small-and-medium-sized businesses who work for these companies.
