Johnson Lambert Knows
Risk Retention Groups
With our familiarity and deep involvement in the captive insurance industry, we have a rich history of working with risk retention groups for decades. Today we provide audit, tax, and advisory services to approximately 25% of the risk retention group sector.
Similar to our captive practice, we foster relationships with captive managers and RRG boards so that we can ensure efficiency, responsiveness, and a true partnership that benefits our RRG clients not only during the annual engagement period and throughout the year.
Services for Risk Retention Groups
We add value to our clients and their captive management companies through efficient engagements, knowledge sharing, best practice advising, and tailored synergistic and communicative approaches.
Audit and Accounting Advisory Services
Risk retention groups are unique entities that deserve an auditor who understands this sector and who will right-size the audit approach for every individual RRG. We leverage our experience from working with a significant number of RRGs, and we always listen to, learn from, and understand each client as we design our audit plans and deliver our audit services.
When accounting standards are updated, when the laws and regulations that affect RRGs change, or when your RRG is undergoing operational changes, a knowledgeable, caring, responsive, and committed advisor can make these challenges and opportunities easier to tackle. We enjoy working collaboratively with our clients to solve any problem, improve any pain point, or optimize any process.
As our RRG audit and advisory teams routinely work with similar organizations, our engagement team leaders are tuned in to industry happenings and hot-topics, and they are constantly educating and sharing pertinent information with both the Johnson Lambert team and our clients.Audit and Assurance Services
Risk retention groups have specialized tax considerations and questions, and as such, they will benefit from working with Johnson Lambert’s tax team that works with many RRGs. The team will deliver the services and assistance you need in a timely manner, and they are available at any time throughout the year to provide guidance and answer your toughest tax questions.
Our tax services for risk retention groups include federal and state income tax preparation, preparation and review of quarterly and annual provisions, uncertain tax position documentation, taxing authority examination representation, tax planning and consulting, and more.Tax Services
