Course Description

The Department of Labor provides numerous resources for employee benefit plan auditors and Form 5500 and financial statement preparers, as well as individuals who select auditors. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Labor (DOL) both encourage voluntary corrections of these errors and have published programs to assist plan sponsors in making these corrections. This free CPE webinar will discuss the programs administered by the IRS and the DOL, along with discussing some of the most common errors and their corrections.

By attending this webinar, CPAs who audit qualified plans will learn about some of the common mistakes that arise in the administration of these plans, and what clients should do in order to fix these mistakes. The program will also discuss solutions for companies whose Form 5500 filings are not made in a timely manner. Taking advantage of these programs can save significant time and money for the sponsors of retirement plans.

In this webinar we will also discuss programs that are available to correct errors in Qualified retirement plans, including 401(k) plans.
