About This Meeting
ESOPs are complicated and it is inevitable that some companies will make mistakes. Finding and correcting those mistakes yourself can save time and trouble, and the experts in this Webinar will help you prevent any audits from becoming complicated, to find errors, and to decide the best way to address those errors yourself, before the regulators get involved.
You will learn:
- What avenues are available if you have made errors in your plan?
- How can you best prepare for audits and other challenges?
