IRS and DOL Audits Happen - How Employers Can be Prepared

Learn why a 401(k) audit is important and how it can be performed efficiently by all involved parties.

Many plan sponsors do not understand how the IRS could find problems with their tax-qualified retirement plans upon audit since their plans are required to have an ERISA audit each year. This timely topic helps plan sponsors and their advisors understand what happens during the annual ERISA required audit. Why such an audit is not a guarantee that their plans would pass an IRS audit with flying colors and why it is a best practice to review the plans and administration to make corrections before the IRS comes knocking. This material is critical for plan sponsors so they can ensure their tax-qualified plans will pass muster in the event of an IRS audit.

Runtime: 109 minutes
