Employee Benefit Plan Audit

The employee benefit plan arena is constantly changing. Failure to keep up with these constantly changing requirements can result in substantial penalties to the plan sponsor. The myriad changes require that the plan sponsor have the support of experienced benefit plan professionals. 

One of the most important fiduciary responsibilities of a benefit plan is  hiring a qualified independent CPA to audit the plan's financial statements. The plan auditor  must have both industry and technical expertise.

Employee Benefit Plan Partner Chris Etheridge Discusses Benefit Plan Audits

As a leading service provider of employee benefit plan services nationally, Frazier & Deeter's employee benefit plan services group is comprised of dedicated ERISA specialists who go beyond providing just the audit of the plan's financial statements. They fully understand the responsibility and risk that the plan fiduciary faces and continually stay abreast of all current industry developments.

In addition to the financial statement audits Frazier & Deeter's CPAs assist with plan design issues, plan operation and compliance, and other general employee benefit areas. They work closely with the plan's human resources and benefits group in improving the plan's administrative processes wherever possible.
