Introduction Accountants

Due to the new APES 110 SMSF Auditors independence guidelines, it is possible that many SMSF auditors may not be able to find themselves "independent" anymore to audit funds where their firm (or network firm) has done more than "routine and Mechanical" administration for the fund.

If you think you are one of these firms, we have a solution for you.

Solution for Accountants / Administrators

Once financial statements are prepared and signed by the trustees, they need to be audited before the income tax return can be lodged. Usually billing to trustees happens at the time of signing and lodgement of income tax return. Hence, it is of paramount importance that the "Audit" happens smoothly and quickly - say within 10 working days.

Our solution brings Trustees, you and auditors on the same platform. Below are the steps which you need to take to get the funds audited quickly:

Step 1

If you are interested for us to audit for you - download our contract and contact Vaibhav on 02 96844199. We offer a free Accounting CRM which can integrate with Your website. You will be able to set up SMSFs without AFSL License and providing advice to your clients and all your Trustee clients will be able to upload documents online from your website.

Step 3

Once your website is integrated with ours - you will have a CRM better than most of the largest administrators in Australia for free. You will have the capacity to collect data from your trustee clients - change structure of the fund / lodge form 484 to ASIC / Get financials, tax returns signed digitally by Trustees. You will be able to set up new funds on your website, set up bank accounts and share broker accounts - all this happens on your website as our platform is a white label product.

Step 4

Once fund data for any financial year is collected from the trustees online on our platform or uploaded by you on our platform, it stays there for the auditor to access. You can then upload the signed financial statements for the Auditors Pool to audit.

Step 5

Once the fund is initiated - our Admin team will invoice you based on the below fee - allocate the fund to one of our SMSF Auditors who will audit the fund within 10 days. There are over 40 auditors in our pool currently who are contracted to us.

Type A

$440 Incl. GST : All Members are in accumulation phase. The fund has invested in cash and ASX listed shares and there are no complications in the fund.

Type B

$495 Incl. GST : Type A + some members are in pension phase and the fund owns 1 property without borrowing, additional property will be charged @ $110 per property.

Type C

$550 Incl. GST : Type B + 1 property has a borrowing; additional borrowing will be charged @ $110 per property. (e.g. a fund has 2 properties with borrowings - Audit Fees will be $495 + $110 + $110 = $715).

Type D

$605 Incl. GST : Type C + investments in personal use assets or crypto currencies or an in-house asset etc.

Type E

$660 Incl. GST : Type D + Investment in related trusts (such as 13.22C Trusts) or related non listed companies
