The CARES Act and its impact on retirement plans

As our society continues to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, employers must appropriately understand the impacts of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act on retirement plans. Join Baker Tilly for an on-demand webinar discussing the provisions of the CARES Act pertaining to retirement plans, and how COVID-19 has caused changes in the audit approach and other considerations related to retirement plan audits. The discussion will include consideration of the impact of COVID-19 on the 2019 financial statements of retirement plans, and how auditors are navigating in the new virtual environment of auditing.
