Any auditor can say they know employee benefit plans, but many companies that have experienced issues with their recent audit know that claim is not always true. If not careful, a deficient audit could result in significant financial ramifications in 2014 and beyond.

“Choosing the wrong auditing firm could be a costly mistake. Employee Benefit Plan Audits require specialized knowledge. You must do your due diligence in selecting your auditing firm,” says Howard H. Fine, Partner-in-Charge of Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C.’s Accounting & Auditing Group and its Employee Benefit Plan Audit Group.

When it comes to an employee benefit plan audit, a company should look for quality and dependability. One of the most common reasons an auditor's report is found deficient is because the auditor failed to perform tests that are unique to this type of audit. In fact, an auditor may view the audit as a means of fulfilling reporting requirements instead of seeing it for what it should be: a means to protect the company’s fiduciary responsibilities.

Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C., an audit and business valuation firm, discusses common issues that companies run into when it comes to employee benefit plan audits.

  •     You thought your employee benefit plan audit would go smoothly. Instead, you got an unanticipated and unwanted surprise because the auditor did not perform tests unique to employee benefit plans.
  •     You expected your audit would be completed on time. Instead, you had to pull additional data just before the filing deadline.
  •     You hired an auditor you thought could do the job. Instead, you received a letter from the Department of Labor notifying you of the many deficiencies in the audit.
