Our 401(k) plan is going through the annual audit. Our last payroll of 2009 was paid on 12/31/09. We uploaded the file to our 401(k) TPA's website on 12/30/09, the same day we processed the payroll. Now they want to write us up because the W-2s don't match what the TPA shows as plan deferrals for the year because it always takes the TPA a few days to post the contributions to the employees' accounts. Therefore, next year we should not run any payrolls the last week of December in case the TPA can't get them posted in the same year. What??? :shock:
