Technically Speaking: Valuations and the SMSF Audit

This edition of Technically Speaking, written by Naomi Kewley, Managing Director, Peak Super Audits, will help you navigate the asset valuation tightrope, with a focus on property investments.

This bulletin acknowledges that an SMSF auditor is often caught in the crossfire between trustees, accountants, administrators, and the Regulators — especially when it comes to property and rent valuations. However, by taking a deep dive into the labyrinth of legislation, auditing standards, and the Regulator’s guidance on asset valuations you will better know where you stand on the issue of appropriate evidence and the risk of NALI.

Understanding the need for robust audit files will allow you to turn the valuation tightrope into a pathway for an effective relationship with your specialist SMSF auditor.
