Our dedicated team of auditors has extensive experience providing audit and tax services for employee benefit plans.
Employers with more than 100 employees are required to procure an annual retirement plan audit. They are also expected to ensure that they maintain compliance between the Department of Labor’s rules and regulations and their plan’s trust document. Our professionals can perform internal audit controls to ensure your policies and procedures are compliant with both.
Some audits are found to be deficient due to failure of the auditors to conduct tests in areas that are unique to employee benefit plans. Employee benefit plan audits are more than an examination of the plan’s investments or checking to see that the “numbers" are correct. Our plan auditors receive extensive training in the employee benefit plan arena, and their ERISA knowledge can provide you with answers to your questions throughout the year.
