The ATO is closely monitoring SMSF audit quality, including those potentially compromised by low-cost, high-volume audit procedures. Failure to identify tax liability non-compliance is also on the radar. This session looks at key red flags the auditor should watch, including:

  • Preparing the audit plan - does it deal with effective tax compliance?
  • Gathering tax evidence to support financial statements - how far do you go?
  • Testing assertions sufficient to query tax liability
  • Forming an opinion on the fairness and reasonability of tax liability on accounts
  • Examining structures to get around non-arm’s-length income rules
  • Considering materiality and risk in the financial audit
  • Using audit documentation to support your findings and protecting yourself

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
