Employee Benefit Plan Audits

“Some of the plans we audit cover 130 people and some up to 10,000 people – the size of the plan doesn’t matter. What matters is that we step through the process efficiently and make it as unobtrusive as possible for our client.”

 

– Maria T. Hurd, CPA, Director

 

Why work with BLS for your Employee Benefit Plan Audit?

We stay current. With the constant changes in ERISA and Department of Labor’s Employee Benefit Security Administration reporting requirements, you need a firm that understands the complexities of single and multi-employer plan compliance, and one that can provide you with timely information about regulatory changes. If you already have a plan in place or are evaluating new plan options, our team of benefit plan specialists will analyze your company’s financial situation and provide recommendations to meet your objectives.

We understand your financial goals, and we want to help you achieve them. Whether your goal is to maximize shareholders’ allocations for wealth accumulation or provide employee benefit upgrades, we can help. We coordinate and manage the annual audit of your plan and completion of Form 5500 and required supplemental schedules. We work closely with you and your third-party administrator to ensure that participant balances are complete and accurate and the necessary reports are filed.

We’re experienced. Our team is diligent about timely response for a prompt and accurate completion of the audit and Form 5500 filing. Attorneys call upon us to complete final audits of terminated plans for national companies undergoing bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware. We communicate regularly with the plan’s trustees, actuaries, investment advisors and third-party administrators so that the legal team and plan administrators are informed of any audit findings.

We also perform Taft-Hartley plan audits, and have 25 years of experience in this area. We provide guidance for the trustees, assisting them with the implementation of internal control processes for the plan.

    • Avoiding the Hardship of Correcting Hardship Distribution Violations

      Administering hardship distributions correctly is important to prevent the hardship of completing a correction of an error in administration. Often, plan officials assume that their third party administrator is collecting all the information necessary for the approval and proper processing of a hardship, when that is not always the case.
