Privately Held Sponsors

Your company offers an employee benefit plan to attract and retain the best team members. Clark Schaefer Hackett’s Employee Benefit Plan Audit Group can help you guard that investment in top talent.

We offer the stability and capabilities of a national firm with the service delivery and relationship of a local firm.

Trusting your audit to a firm with our level of training, experience and expertise will greatly reduce your risk of fines and other penalties. And a CSH performed audit also provides more reliable information used to manage and administer your plan.

Clark Schaefer Hackett provides audit services to over 275 plans. That makes us one of the top 25 firms nationally to audit employee benefit plans – by number of plans audited, number of participants, and assets held within the plans.

Our Approach to Client Service

Our engagements include multiple internal reviews and we’ve implemented an annual internal inspection process to review selected engagements to ensure they adhere to professional standards and firm policies.

We undergo peer review by another major accounting firm and PCAOB examination. Our firm is also subject to routine inspection by regulatory agencies such as the Auditor of State of Ohio, the Office of the Inspector General and Department of Labor. We continue to receive an unqualified “clean” opinion.

Our experts can help you stay compliant, manage risk, and make smart decisions. But we also respond promptly, deliver quality and truly care about your success.
