This comprehensive “must have” resource provides practical guidance and procedures on the EBP financial statement audit process required by professional standards.

Being in compliance with professional standards ensures that you pass peer review and are not at risk for rejection by the Department of Labor (DOL). Following the audit procedures laid out in this guide will help you avoid common deficiencies found by the DOL and AICPA Peer Review.

The 2015 edition provides the latest on new standards requirements including: liquidation basis of accounting, using the work of internal audit, disclosure of uncertainties about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern, a revised illustrative Form 11-K auditor’s report, and expanded discussion of engagement quality control reviews.
