It may surprise you to learn that if your company employs more than 100 eligible participants, you generally are required by the Department of Labor to have an audit of your employee benefit plan.
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires that the plan’s financial statements are audited in line with Generally Accepted Auditing Standards when the plan surpasses 100 eligible participants, and that they are presented in line with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles specifically for employee benefit plans.
Employee benefit plan audits require specially trained, experienced and knowledgeable professionals. At Goldin Peiser & Peiser, our Employee Benefit Plan Services Group is ready to service all your employee benefit plan audit needs.
When it comes to employee benefit plan audits, the consequences of noncompliance are significant, so our first priority is to look for timely remittances and timely filings and test the compliance of your plan with your plan documents. We will work with you to ensure your plan complies with ERISA reporting requirements and other governmental regulations.
