Deferred compensation and URSSAF audit assistance

URSSAF disputes: anticipation, management and optimisation

EXPERTISE

Finding: In 2018, the URSSAF entities undertook 216,000 audits leading to adjustments in 90% of cases. Adjustments are complex and multi-faceted matters: professional expenses, benefits in kind, compensation for employment contract termination, employee savings, AGIRC/ARRCO supplementary pensions, supplementary social protection schemes, etc.

Companies are frequently insufficiently prepared for these audits, in particular the new methods used by the inspectors (use of computerised accounting entries file now systematic).

Our response: in order to limit adjustments, we offer you continuous support before, during and after audits:

  • Before the audit: preparation for the audit (strategy to be adopted for the different elements, preparation and organisation of documents, responses to inspectors’ requests, etc.)
  • Challenging an adjustment: support drafting all legal documents (response to the letter of observations, referral to arbitration committee, referral to the high court department responsible for corporate matters, etc.)
  • After the audit: consideration of the observations made by the URSSAF to review the company’s irregular practices.

Monitoring tools available on the client extranet portal (provision of documents, case file status, actions to be implemented, etc.) in order to simplify the management of URSSAF audits as much as possible and streamline our interaction.
