Employee Benefit Plans
Employee benefit plans (EBP) require specialized accounting and financial reporting services. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) scrutinizes annual plan reports and can review audit workpapers for adherence to professional standards, making close plan examination crucial.
Whether you need an audit to remain compliant or you need help designing, implementing or administering an EBP, BKD, LLP and BKD Wealth Advisors, LLC can offer the assistance you need.
