You may be surprised to learn that if your company employs more than 100 eligible participants you are generally required by the Department of Labor to have an audit of your employee benefit plan (EBP). The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires that the plan’s financial statements are audited in line with the Generally Accepted Auditing Standards, and that they are presented in line with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles specifically for employee benefit plans. These audits require specially trained, experienced, and knowledgeable professionals, as we have at GPP, to effectively service your needs.
We know that the consequences of non-compliance are very significant so our first priority is to look for timely remittances and timely filings, and to test the compliance of your plan with your plan documents. We work with our clients to make sure that the plans are in compliance with ERISA reporting requirements and other governmental regulations.
Our EBP services include:
- Assistance with voluntary compliance programs
- 401(k) plan audit
- 403(b) plan audit
- Defined benefits plan
- Profit sharing plan
- Defined contribution plan
