Timely & Accurate Adherence to Fiduciary & Regulatory Standards
In today’s competitive economy, companies must not only differentiate themselves among competition, but they must offer a strong benefit plan to attract and retain top talent. As you increase your benefit plan participants an employee benefit plan audit is necessary. As obvious as this may seem, the real challenge lies in staying up to date on the complex and rapidly changing rules and regulations from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Department of Labor (DOL), and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to meet the requirements of an audit.
Even if plan administrators are able to stay up to date, fully understanding the implications of these rapid changes on your benefit plan can be daunting. With growing responsibilities and increased scrutiny of plan administrators, fiduciaries require a proven partner to meet the needs of their employee benefit plan audit, while maintaining regular plan operations.
