Product Details

Reporting on ERISA engagements has changed. See what is new.

SAS No. 136, Forming an Opinion and Reporting on Financial Statements of Employee Benefit Plans Subject to ERISA, is specific to audits of financial statements of employee benefit plans (EBPs) subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This guidance is for audits of ERISA plan financial statements only.

AU-C section 703, Forming an Opinion and Reporting on Financial Statements of Employee Benefit Plans Subject to ERISA, addresses the auditor's responsibility to form an opinion on the financial statements of EBPs subject to ERISA. It also addresses the form and content of the auditor’s report issued as a result of an audit of ERISA plan financial statements. AU-C section 703 applies to audits of single employer, multiple employer, and multiemployer plans subject to ERISA and to an audit of a complete set of general purpose financial statements of ERISA plans and is written in that context.

AU-C section 703 also addresses audits of section 103(a)(3)(C) ERISA audits. This module presents guidance for both, layering on the differences when performing a section 103(a)(3)(C) engagement.
