Employee Benefit Plan Audits
The Importance of Employee Benefit Plans
Employee benefit plans are an important part of how your company cares for and compensates its employees. They also represent numerous responsibilities, financial and regulatory, for the employer.
No matter what your company’s employee benefit plan (EBP) looks like, we can perform comprehensive audits to ensure regulatory compliance and complete, accurate annual filings. Our staff has experience with various plan types, including defined contribution retirement plans, such as 401(k), 403(b), and profit-sharing, employee stock ownership arrangements, defined benefit pension plans, and health and welfare plans.
Employee benefit plan audits are required by the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to ensure that your company is fulfilling its obligations and meeting regulatory requirements. Our years of experience in EBP auditing, along with our strong understanding of generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS), as well as ERISA and DOL regulation, provide us with the specialized skills and knowledge to perform truly effective EBP audits.
