Generally, all employee benefit plans with 100 or more participants are required to have an audit as part of their obligation to file an annual report with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). If your employee benefit plan is required to have an audit, it is the plan administrator’s duty to hire an independent public accountant, and to ensure that the plan has obtained a quality audit in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and the DOL requirements.
Audits of employee benefit plans are an important part of Weaver’s practice. As one of the top 30 benefit plan auditors in the United States, we audit more than 250 plans each year – including more Texas plans than any other firm. Our experience includes numerous types of plans like defined contribution plans such as 401(k) or 403(b) plans, profit sharing plans and employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), defined benefit plans, and health and welfare plans. We are continually expanding and refining our services to meet our clients’ changing needs. Whether you sponsor one plan or multiple benefit plans, have 100 eligible participants or are managing flexible programs for 50,000 employees in multiple locations – or you are anywhere in between – Weaver has the expertise to efficiently and effectively audit your company’s employee benefit plan.
