Recorded Webinar: SMSF Audit: Preparing for an Automated Platform – Electronic Data Feeds and Testing Reliability


11th February 2019

Duration:  approx. 1.5 hours

New payments platforms developed by banks increase the level of data available to auditors from bank transactions. The possibility of more data feeds covering exotic and international investment products means you have to be ‘automation ready.’ This session looks at the issues including:

  • Understanding how technology-based accounting systems enable SMSF audit automation
  • Aligning the automated SMSF audit with the Australian Auditing Standards
  • Addressing automation gaps such as risk analysis and compliance checks
  • Maintaining professional standards in the automated audit
  • Testing electronic data fed programs whilst maintaining professional scepticism
  • Ensuring compliance with ATO and ASIC requirements in your automated audit
  • Is it possible to have real-time auditing?
  • Case study - Is the paper-based audit dead?
