John Wiley & Sons, Jun 12, 2019 - Business & Economics - 64 pages

The increasing complexity of employee benefit plan auditing and focus by the Department of Labor have resulted in significant pressure for CPAs and firms performing EBP audits. To help CPAs meet the challenge of performing quality audits in this unique and complex area, the AICPA has developed this alert to assist in identifying current sources of risk within EBP audit engagements.

Written by a task force consisting of current and former employee benefit plan expert panel members, this alert features discussions on new developments and issues that auditors may face in their current audits, as well as a look at what's in the pipeline that may affect your engagements.
