Industry leadership

In 2016, in response to the DOL’s criticism of auditors of benefit plans, the AICPA launched a certification program for auditors to showcase their competencies in performing these specialized audits and prove their ability to uphold audit quality.

When it comes to employee benefit plan auditing, experience counts

Most CPA firms audit fewer than 100 benefit plans annually, which can cause problems ranging from higher deficiency rates to unnecessary delays.

The annual audit of your employee benefit plan might be unavoidable, but it doesn’t have to be a drawn-out, anxiety-inducing process. At Crowe, our experienced specialists have decades of experience with benefit plan audits, and they understand the intricacies and issues involved.

The more complexity and number of plans you have, the more Crowe stands apart from other accounting firms
