Employee Benefit Plan Auditing

Services for Sponsors of Employee Benefit Plans

Russell Thompson Butler & Houston recognizes that auditing retirement plans is a complex and industry-specific task that requires specialized experience and knowledge. With ever-changing rules and regulations along with increased monitoring and investigation from the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor, it is essential that a company choose the right audit provider for their retirement plan. As required by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), companies with employee benefit plans consisting of 100 or more participants are required to have an audit conducted by an independent, licensed or certified public accountant.
