Prevent penalties
due to inaccurate or incomplete plan audits


If you are an administrator of an employee benefit plan with 100 or more eligible participants, you are most likely required to file an audit of that plan along with your Form 5500 annual return.

If the audit is deemed inadequate, the plan administrator may be personally liable for any penalties assessed.

The MiddletonRaines+Zapata audit team has extensive experience auditing a range of employee benefit plans, including:

  • Defined contribution plans, including 401(k) plans subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Defined benefit (pension) plans
  • 403(b) plans for certain governmental and tax-exempt organizations
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)

Our employee benefit plan auditors keep apprised of the most recent developments in benefit plan audit requirements and conduct audits quickly and efficiently, with minimal distractions.
