Superannuation Funds (SMSF)
All APRA Regulated and Self Managed Superannuation Funds have to be audited on an annual basis, as required by the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (SIS Act).
The audit process involves obtaining the financial statements for the fund as well as the annual return, and verifying the balances at year end and the transactions during the year to supporting third party documentation. We also verify trustee decisions to minutes of meetings and ensure other matters dealt with in the SIS Act, like pension requirements, the investment strategy and market values have been complied with.
We have a detailed SMSF requirements document to give you guidance on the kind of documents we ask for so that you can prepare.
At AMW we audit over 300 superannuation funds on an annual basis. We have 2 registered SMSF auditors of which one is an SMSF Specialist auditor. Being members of the SMSF Association, we stay up to date with training and are eager to assist you in fulfilling your audit obligations as trustee and financial advisors/SMSF accountant.
Anderson Munro Wylie have been our preferred audit firm for SMSFs and other audits for many years. We have always been impressed by the team’s expertise and understanding of auditing issues.
