    I got a letter from saif corporation (for workers comp) that they want to do a "premium audit" of all our records! Is this a big deal? Apparently it can be as long as a full day unless you are well prepared. We use quickbook pro and I feel like we are effeciant with our record keeping, I am just wondering if they will want to look at equipment, trucks or go through the shop? Is this a biggie? anyone else go through one of these audits?

    A work comp audit is no big deal. I had one that lasted about an hour. They just want to make sure that your payroll matches up to what you are paying them for the coverage.

    The woman doing mine came to my shop with a laptop and worked very fast.

    Nothing to worry about.

    They didn't look at any of my equipment.

    They audit us once a year. It's a phone audit and takes about 15 minutes.Just ask me for alot of numbers for each quarter and what type of work we perform,etc. They send us a work sheet proir to have all the required numbers available.No big deal so far. Knock on wood :hammerhead: "Premium audit" maybe a little more exploratory.

    If you use a CPA for tax reporting, he can handle it.
