Fifth Annual SMSF Audit Conference

Thursday 20 & Friday 21 July 2017
Palazzo Versace, Gold Coast

The Federal Government’s sweeping super reforms are finally here. With these changes come a number of challenges for SMSF auditors, not the least of which is understanding the new law and its implications for the fund audit process.

This year’s program focuses on the reforms and drills down on how the amendments will impact the auditor’s role. We also examine a range of specific technical issues facing auditors, as well as updates on audit technology. This year, we will also be hearing from the ATO and ASIC on regulator standards and expectations.

Once again, the conference will be anchored with a number of presentations from SMSF Audit specialists, Sharlene Anderson from Veritas Corp on the Gold Coast and Belinda Aisbett from Super Sphere in Melbourne.
