employee benefit plan audits shannon
Plans and plan sponsors are facing new challenges, greater responsibility and increased scrutiny
from participants and regulators. If your employee benefit plan is required to have an audit, one of
the most important duties of the plan administrator is to hire an independent auditor for the plan. A
quality audit will help protect the assets and the financial integrity of your employee benefit plan
and ensure that the necessary funds will be available to pay retirement, health, and other
promised benefits to your employees.

Our goal is to perform a quality audit as well as to assist our clients to develop and maintain
quality plans for themselves and their employees. We believe it is important to help our clients
