The nature of an SMSF means that trustees will not always have the skill base of other fund trustees. Mistakes will be made. This session examines different levels of mistakes by trustees and how the auditor should respond to them.

  • Common mistakes made by SMSF trustees including:
    • sole purpose test breach
    • investments in wrong name
    • ensuring right amount of pension is paid
    • staying within in-house asset rules
    • separation of assets
    • exceeding contributions caps
    • withdrawal and deposit errors
  • Auditor’s duties when trustee makes mistakes - does it vary according to seriousness?
  • Genuine mistake or intentional act – is this relevant?
  • Technical SIS breaches that are not serious – how should the auditor respond?  When is an ACR required and when can it be avoided?
  • Mistakes unrelated to SIS compliance
  • Role of the management letter
  • Does the auditor have an educative role?

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).
