Our scope of work

SMSF auditing from start to finish

Steve Jobs was an over-achiever who changed the world – and he did so by not trying to do too many things, but instead by concentrating his thinking and his resources on making Apple a winner without diversifying into a myriad industries and services.

SMSF Audit Link does one thing very well, and our specialty is auditing self-managed super funds, from commencement to completion. We take our role as an approved ASIC auditor in conducting SMSF audit engagements very seriously and fully understand the responsibility which is stipulated within legislation.

We’re specialists driven by the pursuit of excellence

The friendly team at SMSF Audit Link has a commitment to excellence that ensures our SMSF audits are as good as they possibly can be – every time – by rigorously following a nine-point plan:


Totally independent

Our independence and transparency of operations ensures that accountants and advisors preparing financial statements for an SMSF receive an audit opinion that is free from any pressure and undue influence.


We’re local – not offshore

We’re highly skilled, approachable, and locally based – in the Norwest Business Park in Sydney’s Hills district. We don’t send jobs offshore, ever. So your audit won’t be lost in translation or simply lost in a long unwieldy process.


Fast to ultra-fast turnaround

Not only are we meticulous, we’re quick. We are sometimes able to complete an audit within 2-3 business days and we guarantee a 3-5 business days turnaround, provided that all the required information is made available to us.


Flat fees, so you know where you stand

We have a fixed fees arrangement with many advisors and accountants where a blanket fees is charged between $350 to $450 + GST per fund (depending on complexity) for the whole practice, immaterial of the number of transactions per fund.


Experienced team

Our auditing team are a mix of mature employees who each possess more than 15 years SMSF industry experience, along with our ‘young guns’ who are committed, talented, adaptable to technological advancement and eager to make a strong difference for our clients.


Focused on assisting you

As a specialist SMSF audit firm, we have no interest in competing with accountants for accountancy work for direct self-managed super fund trustees. We follow all the legislative SMSF audits requirements set by law and the professional accounting bodies along with the auditing and assurance standards board.


A tailored approach

Due to our flexible, personalised approach, we will adapt to your style of work. Regardless of the size of the firm, we can make sure that we are blending with the existing process of our clients.


100% guarantee

Our SMSF audits are carried out in a highly professional manner, without any threat to the accuracy and quality of the audits. We provide a 100% assurance that our audit will communicate any legislative gaps so that the trustees can address them, before the ATO investigates and imposes any penalties.


Effective communication

No one likes surprises. That’s why we deliver regular, clear and consistent communications around issues as soon as they arise, without exception. And our team members on the audit always discuss these issues with you before any formal reports are sent to the client.

SMSF Audit Link reporting parameters

As an ATO-approved auditor of self-managed superannuation funds, we are required under the S.I.S. Act to provide a signed auditor’s report on an SMSF’s year of operations to the trustees, in the approved format, before a SMSF may submit its Annual Return and income tax return to the Australian Taxation Office.

We also compile a written report to a trustee, or the ATO, if while conducting an audit of an SMSF we form an opinion that:

  • Any contraventions of the SISA or SISR, may have occurred, may be
    occurring or may occur in relation to the SMSF (section 129 of the SISA); or
  • The financial position of the SMSF may be, or may be about to become,
    unsatisfactory (section 130 of the SISA).

Time to change SMSF auditors?

If you have an existing relationship with an SMSF auditor that isn’t working well for you, changing an auditor for self-managed super funds is very easy. Just speak with one of our team for more information.
