FROM THE BLOG
On August 6, 2021, the IRS announced that no 2020 Form 5500 is required for employers who in 2021 retroactively adopt a tax-qualified retirement plan for 2020.
The current 401(k) plan restatement cycle will close on July 31, 2022; all plan documents need to be not only restated by then, but also certified by the IRS, and adopted by employers.
