Any employer, regardless of size, or whether or not they are incorporated, can contribute to an HSA for their employees as long as the employees are covered by a high deductible health plan (HDHP). Employer contributions are excluded from the income of the employee (i.e., they are tax-free to the employee). Employer contributions are not subject to federal income taxes, Social Security (FICA) taxes, or unemployment (FUTA) taxes.
Generally, employers take a federal income tax deduction on the business income tax return for the year of HSA contributions for employees, because such contributions are considered medical expenses. Please consult your tax advisor for the impact on your business tax situation.
