#     Definition of Stadard /Non Standard

Standard Fund include funds where all bank accounts and investments have direct data feeds available. This would include cash, term deposits, listed equities, certain managed funds, & wrap Accounts etc

Non Standard Funds are funds that hold bank accounts or investments that do not have direct data feeds and require manual processing. This would generally unlisted investments such as direct property, unlisted unit trusts, certain managed funds, derivatives, collectables etc

^      Potential additional audit charges:

An Auditor Contravention Report (ACR): where ATO guidelines require compliance issues to be recorded in an ACR, then preparation and the lodgement of an ACR is an additional $330 (GST inclusive). We will contact you if an ACR is required.

Death Benefits: where a fund pays out a death benefit during the year an additional fee of $220 (GST inclusive). We will contact you if a death benefit fee is applicable.

Please note: Funds with serious compliance issues where specialist guidance is required will be classified as ‘RED’ and will be priced upon application (anecdotally this is less than 2% of funds audited).

*     Transition Fee

A once off transition fee is payable where the historical data needs to be reconstructed (eg the current software file is not available). This is not applicable for funds in the first year of operation.
