SMSF Audit

Fast turnaround and low-cost SMSF Audits.

We have contracted a panel of auditors, including Baumgartner Superannuation, to provide independent Audit Services. The service can be used standalone or, if bundled with your administration work, the streamlined processes reduce the number of queries and make this service cost-effective.

SMSF Audits: Why Are They Necessary?

SMSF audits are mandatory as part of SMSF regulations in Australia regardless of whether or not you have made contributions or received any benefits throughout the year. 

The purpose of the SMSF audit is to ensure that the financial records are valid and accurate (financial audit) and that the fund is compliant with superannuation rules (compliance audit). 

All SMSF trustees must ensure that the fund undergoes a quality SMSF audit each year to ensure SMSF compliance. The SMSF trustees must appoint an independent auditor at least 45 days before their tax return with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is due. 

To ensure your client’s SMSF meets all legal requirements, an annual audit with a specialist firm is essential. The independent auditor who conducts the SMSF audit must be registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Our Services: Financial and Compliance Audit

Currently, we offer our clients two SMSF audit packages:

Audit Bundled with Administration

When we prepare the accounts, we aim to collect all of the audit data upfront so that the audit process should be as smooth as possible. Naturally, we then pass these savings on to you.

Standalone Audit

When you or another accountant prepares financial accounts, we can still assist you with the Audit. You will simply need to complete an Audit only checklist and provide the Financial Statements and relevant source documents.

three categories, Green, Amber and Red.
