Recorded Webinar: SMSF Audits and Tax Liability Compliance


9th November 2018

Duration:  approx. 1.5 hours 

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
