Webinar Series – Increase SMSF audit efficiency

Increasing compliance and efficiency of your SMSF audits (all times are Melbourne times)

Whilst it may appear overkill to apply the same auditing and assurance standards to a SMSF audit as would the auditor of a large listed company, in reality, it is in fact a blessing in disguise that SMSF auditors are required to do so.

Whilst the ATO and accounting bodies have identified areas of concern relating to the quality of SMSF audit in come instances, we guarantee that many auditors are actually ‘over auditing’ and doing far more than the auditing and assurance standards require of them.

This webinar series is designed to show SMSF auditors how they can use the Australian auditing and assurance standards to their advantage to increase the speed and efficiency of their audits and peace of mind that they are complying with the auditing and assurance standards which now have force of law for SMSF audits.
