How Are You Preparing for Your Employee Benefit Plan Audit?

Employee benefit plans are a complex area that require intimate knowledge of plan design as well as performance.

When considering an auditor for your plan, be sure to ask the following questions:

  • Is your auditor looking at your plan’s operations, documents, and amendments?

  • Does your auditor understand the difference between the requirements for the financial statements and your Form 5500?

  • Does your auditor invest in training to keep up-to-date on the latest issues?

  • Is your auditor a member of the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center?

  • Does your auditor assign an experienced benefit plan auditor to service your account?

  • Do you understand that the plan fiduciary is responsible for the work performed by auditors
