Free SMSF Review

Some SMSFs are very tricky. We are happy to review one for you to help. No expectations. It’s our way of giving back.

  • Compliance - does the SMSF comply with all the ATO rules and regulations including SISA, TRIS and SISR?
  • Breaches – are there any breaches that have your clients exposed to high penalties? That they will have to pay themselves.
  • Improve its performance – identify ways in which the SMSF pays less tax to the government and protects your clients' assets.
