401(k) Audit Services We Perform

Limited Scope Audit

A limited scope audit entails fewer audit procedures and less testing. But does your firm’s business structure qualify for one? Are your 401(k) plans in order? Does your firm have an administrator for 401(k) plans? Entrust these and other critical queries to our team. Our experts can help determine the kind of 401(k) audit your business needs and is eligible for. Our team of professionals reviews your SOC2 reports to determine whether the business is eligible for a limited scope audit.

Full Scope Audit

A full scope audit will depend upon multiple factors: Does your
firm have a 401(k) administrator? If not, are you sure your business
is compliant with 401(k) plan requirements and responsibilities? Our professionals can help review relevant documents and help you decide on a course of action for a full scope audit. Once it is determined that your business could do better with a full scope audit, our team dedicated to your firm’s 401(k) audit will perform more testing to supplement these procedures.
