Audit Essentials – Documenting the audit – Hotspots for the Regulator

Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) investment comprises approximately one third of Australian superannuation. SMSFs are run by mum & dad trustee-beneficiaries, who lead busy lives and place considerable reliance upon professionals connected with the fund to ‘get it right’. The stakes are high. Complex investment legislation applies, and breach of the rules can lead to serious civil and criminal penalties.

Join Naomi Kewley from Peak Super Audits as she presents her final webinar in the series "Auditing the SMSF Auditor".

Naomi will cover in this webinar the requirements of documenting the audit file for

Collectibles and personal use assets;
Investment in unrelated, unlisted entities post Cam & Bear v McGoldrick

She will explore the auditor’s obligations in relation to these assets, both to inform the trustees and to prepare a robust audit file that will answer the regulator’s expectations.

Naomi has also provided a technical paper to support her webinar which is available.

Delivered by invited SSAUD specialist members, this series of webinars will examine in-depth the practicalities and complex issues encountered in an audit practice. Specialist practitioners providing practical examples and information will be discussed and examined providing insight and strategies of how to address in practice. This is also support by a short technical report.
