Education Training to keep you up to date

We provide you with live educational events to keep you updated with all the changes brought on by new ATO updates, regulations, courts rulings and government changes.

For many though the most valuable part is the Q&A where I answer questions accountants have about how these impact trustees and their SMSFs. Keep an eye out here for upcoming events.

  • Earn CPD points
  • Ask any SMSF questions you have

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.
