How to identify and rectify potential breaches
How to simplify complex arrangements involving property

With property values fluctuating, there are new risks for to auditors and accountants trying to get the accounts right.

With a substantial portion of assets tied to residential and business real property, auditors often face complex problems that don’t always have clear-cut solutions. The risks for practitioners have increased significantly (as has ATO scrutiny). It's essential that auditors are able to identify these risks and comfortably address them.

The Auditing SMSFs with Property webinar provides a practical approach to mitigating audit risk, identifying problem areas, and interpreting guidelines when the lines start to blur for SMSFs with property.

Not just a webinar for auditors, these issues are important for all practitioners to understand what the auditor is looking for and the conversations you need to have with your clients.
