Audits of Employee Benefit Plans

The employee benefit plan industry is multi-faceted and dynamic. Constant scrutiny by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service and frequent accounting changes render the era of the “cookie cutter” approach to auditing benefit plans obsolete. Today’s professional plan auditors should take your employees’ benefits as seriously as you do. We provide the insight you need to manage the challenges of providing employee benefits.

Our experienced and well-trained professionals use a flexible, risk-based approach to auditing employee benefit plans. This enables us to consider all aspects of your benefit plan’s control environment while developing our audit approach. As a result, our audit will always stand up to regulatory scrutiny.

Whether your plan requires a limited- or full-scope audit or even an 11-K filing, our auditors are long-tenured and experienced in 401(k) and other types of defined contribution plan audits, including:

  • Defined contribution plans, including:
    • ESOPs
    • KSOPs
    • Money Purchase Pension Plans
    • 403(b) Plans 
  • Defined benefit pension plans—with and without cash balance features
  • Health and welfare benefit plans funded through trusts

We also provide plan-related services, including reports on service organization controls (SOC 1, 2, and 3 reports). In addition, we also provide other non-audit services you may require, including:

  • Tax Services
  • Employee Benefit Plan Design and Analysis Services
  • DOL and IRS audit assistance
