Annually, our team of employee benefit plan professionals audit more than 300 plans and prepare reviews for more than 350 Form 5500 filings. This group has seen and audited every type of plan, large and small, including, those with alternative investments, plans held in a master trust, and terminating plans.
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) audit practice focuses on large plans – those above the approximate 100-eligible participant threshold for filing an audit report with a Plan’s Form 5500 filing with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), while our Form 5500 team focuses on plans of all types and sizes for compliance with Form 5500 filing requirements, whether audited or not.
In addition, our team handles due diligence issues with mergers and acquisitions and can help correct issues that otherwise might have gone unnoticed. This review saves you from scrutiny by regulators and protects your plan’s qualified status, not to mention the financial benefits for the sponsor.
Our practice is regularly subjected to American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) peer reviews, as well as inspections by the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
