employee benefits plans
As an employer, you would like to assure your employees that their qualified retirement, health, profit-sharing, stock bonus and other promised benefits will be available to them.
Our employee benefit plan specialists will not only assist you in implementing your benefit plan, but will consult and guide you through a complex and rapidly changing area subject to Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and Department of Labor (DOL) regulations.
Our approach to each audit is focused and carried out in stages, which ensures comprehensive, cost-effective results. The unique nature of employee benefit plans creates a number of complicated accounting and auditing issues for plans and their auditors.
As members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center (EBPAQC), we are committed to adhering to the highest quality audit standards. This membership requires our firm to maintain continued professional education within the employee benefit audit plan directive and include employee benefits plans in our peer review process. In addition, we must make our peer review findings publicly available.
Our employee benefit plan audit services include:
Audits of defined contribution plans
Audits of defined benefit pension plans
Audits of health and welfare plans
Pension, health and welfare, and 401(k) plans subject to the Employee Retirement Income – Security Act (ERISA) under the regulatory authority of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)
Consulting services related to employee benefit plans
Our employee benefit plan auditor specialists stay current in this highly technical practice area by attending various continuing education programs including the annual AICPA National Conference on Employee Benefit Plans and other relevant seminars and by participating in regular conferences held by the AICPA-EBPAQC.
We receive up-to-date information on a variety of technical, legislative and regulatory subjects that we then apply to your employee benefit plan audit to ensure that you are in compliance with the appropriate standards and regulation changes. Discussion forums, conferences and teleconferences enhance our approach to our employee benefit plan audit engagements.
