 Benefit Audit Icon


U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) regulations require that employee benefit plans with more than 100 participants be audited annually. You need a qualified, independent public accounting firm to deliver complete and timely Audit reports, to prevent unnecessary penalties.
Bland offers audit services for the following:

  • Single and multi-employer plans
  • Health and welfare plans
  • Defined benefit plans — pension plans and cash balance plans
  • Defined contribution plans — 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans, profit-sharing plans, and employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs)

Did You Know?
Employee benefit plans with between 80 and 120 participants at the beginning of the plan year may file Form 5500 int he same category as they filed in the previous year. These plans may be able to complete Schedule I and file as a small plan under the 80 – 120 rule, thus not requiring an audit. Bland can help you figure out if your business is eligible.
