Strafford 401k Annual Audits Webinar

Christopher J. Ciminera, CPA, QKA, will be presenting at Strafford’s Webinar – Employee Benefit Plan Voluntary Correction Programs: Fixing Costly Errors and Preserving Tax Benefits

Topic: Employee Benefit Plan Voluntary Correction Programs: Fixing Costly Errors and Preserving Tax Benefits

Date: Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Time: 1:00pm – 2:50pm ET

 

This webinar will provide employee benefit plan auditors with best practices and the proper procedures to remedy serious and costly (but all too common) benefit plan errors through available IRS and DOL retirement plan correction programs. The panel will explain the processes and potential pitfalls that practitioners often encounter in correcting plan mistakes and outline how to address these issues based on real-world experiences.
Identifying an operational error during the plan audit is usually only the first step. As a valued service provider, your client generally will request your help to correct operational failures identified during the audit. To be able to appropriately guide them through the correction and to keep the plan in compliance, you must stay on top of the IRS’s and DOL’s ever-changing rules and regulations and understand the available options to correct mistakes once they are discovered.To appropriately assess risk in the audit and help correct identified errors, employee benefit plan auditors and advisers must understand the most prevalent errors and have familiarity with the government’s compliance programs. Our panel will explain how you can provide additional value to your client by helping identify and correct errors in their retirement plan operations–before an IRS audit or DOL investigation occurs.

Our panel will elaborate on the available options to fix plan errors. The panel’s insights will help you identify common errors and effectively collaborate with service providers, potentially including ERISA counsel, to present the client with the available correction options for their consideration. The program will help you gain an understanding of different types of corrective actions under the IRS’s Employee Plans Compliance Resolution System (EPCRS) and the DOL’s Delinquent Filer Voluntary Compliance (DFVC) and Voluntary Fiduciary Correction (VFC) programs.

Listen as our panel offers insights based on real world experience for remedying high risk mistakes commonly identified during benefit plan audits. The panel will also outline approaches to correct plan errors before an audit or after a filing.
