Employee Benefit Plan Audits: Common Misconceptions & How to Address Them

12:00 am–11:59 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



In 2017, the AICPA Peer Review Program analyzed a sample of employee-benefit plan audits to identify areas where noncompliance was most prevalent. In the process, three areas were identified where professional standards weren’t well understood, which led to quality challenges for practitioners. This CPE course covers the peer review findings and the actions your firm can take to strengthen EBP audit quality.
