Choosing a Firm - Quality is Important
As the person who’s responsible for your company’s employee benefit plan, you have many responsibilities. One of the most important duties of the plan administrator is to hire an independent qualified public accountant.
A quality audit will help protect the assets and the financial integrity of your employee benefit plan and ensure that the necessary funds will be available to pay retirement, health, and other promised benefits to your employees. A quality audit also will help you carry out your legal responsibility to file a complete and accurate annual return/report for your plan each year. Because an incomplete, inadequate, or untimely audit report may result in penalties being assessed against you as the plan’s administrator, selection of an experience and reliable auditor is very important.
