We appreciate trustees are very conscious of keeping compliance costs to a minimum as they erode SMSFs investment returns.
We have developed a very efficient audit methodology whereby we can deliver a thorough audit service at a very low cost.
Our mainstream audit fee per SMSF is generally between $350 to $450 plus GST.
We advise trustees to be diligent and not be drawn into audit services offering ridiculously low audit fees (or fixed audit fees) as this may result in a low quality and non-complying audit. The ATO is currently investigating audit service providers offering very low or fixed priced audit fees.
We do not engage any overseas Foreign Service providers. All audit work is carried out at our Victoria Park office, therefore we can guarantee the confidentiality and security of all client information.
We currently audit over 600 SMSFs for some 45 Accounting Firms in Western Australia. We offer the following benefits to Accounting Firms who refer their SMSFs client audits to us.
Referral firms receive free over the phone advice regarding audit issues pertaining to their clients’ SMSFs.
Outsourcing your clients’ audit needs obviates training, maintenance and updating of office procedures, research time etc.
