Audit Essentials: Auditing the SMSF Auditor – Quality Control and the Audit Plan

Getting it right (even if you have audit software)

Join Naomi Kewley, Managing Director of Peak Super Audits in the SMSF Audit essentials webinar series as she provides detailed insights into the complex issues faced by SMSF Auditors.

It is easy to focus on the demands of practice rather than the vehicle used in one’s modus operandi. But safety checks before entering the freeway are a good idea.

This webinar was recorded on 6/4/2018 and the information contained within the presentation was correct as at this time. To ensure the accuracy of this presentation, it will only be available for purchase for 12 months from the date of recording. After this time, it will be removed from our website and from your purchase history.

The use of templates and audit-specific software should not create complacency in an SMSF audit. These aids may give us the place to tick a box – but is required practice actually being performed and evidenced in a way that will satisfy quality reviewers?

Listen as Naomi discusses two key and possibly less examined requirements that underlie the SMSF Audit:

1. Quality control – at both the firm and engagement level
2. The audit plan

The webinar is supported by a Technical Paper written by Peak Super Audits.
