Employee Benefit Audits
BKD audits more than 1,200 employee benefit plans a year, helping clients with complex and specialized accounting, financial reporting, tax (plan qualification) regulations, and legal requirements. Auditor expertise is especially critical in this area because the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) scrutinizes the filed annual reports and can fine the plan administrator for deficiencies in the audited financial statements. The DOL also can review the audit workpapers for adherence to professional standards.
