The May 2020 SMSF Auditor Independence guide released by the Accounting Professional & Ethical Standards Board (APESB) and the professional bodies has a fundamental impact on how professional practices deliver SMSF services to their clients.
Chapter 8 makes it clear that an SMSF auditor cannot audit an SMSF where the auditor, their staff or their firm has prepared the financial statements for the SMSF unless it is a “routine or mechanical service”.
The SMSF Auditor Independence Webinar walks through the essential changes to the APESB Independence Guide step-by-step, to ensure that your practice makes an informed decision about what to do with your SMSF services.
If your practice provides both SMSF audits and compliance services, regardless of your structure, you need to understand the new rules.
