Perform EBP audits confidently and effectively (bold)
Employee benefit plan (EBP) audit engagements are continually scrutinized by regulators and peer reviewers due to the history of noncompliance with applicable professional standards. Auditors require proper skills to perform EBP engagements effectively.
Throughout this webcast, you’ll learn the complete audit process — from engagement acceptance to reporting. Defined contribution plans are the most commonly audited and need to comply not only with professional standards, but also with the requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Department of Labor (DOL), and, in certain audits, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
You will also obtain an awareness of additional considerations when auditing defined benefit pension plans and health and welfare benefit plans. Tap into ways to plan and conduct effective risk-based plan audits to comply with professional standards while maximizing efficiency.
This webcast provides CPE credit in the Auditing (7.5) and Accounting (1) fields of study.
