Employee Benefit Plan Audits

AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center MemberWhen it comes to the audit of employee benefit plans, experience counts! As a Decosimo client, you gain the expertise that comes from 40 years of experience auditing hundreds of plans of all types – including 401(k), 403(b), defined contribution, defined benefit, pension, employee stock option, health and welfare plans - for public and private clients in industries including hospitality, manufacturing, financial institutions, construction, schools and many more. 

The Department of Labor (DOL) is committed to assuring that employee benefit plans are in compliance with the plan document and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) regulations. Under ERISA, companies are required to file an annual report with the Department of Labor, which provides the information to the IRS and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC).

For plans requiring an audit, DOL requirements state that the auditor’s report, audited financial statements, or notes must disclose various matters, such as accounting principles; a plan description; termination priorities; tax status; loss contingencies; significant real estate or other transactions between the plan and its sponsor; related party transactions; and other unusual events.
