1. Guaranteed 2-week turnaround
We guarantee your audit report within 2 weeks. Using our state-of-the-art software system, we can receive your documents online, track progress and issue the audit report within two weeks. If there are issues or circumstances that may slow the process we will identify them up front. Our guarantee of a 2-week turnaround relies on clients providing their responses on time.
2. 100% focus on SMSFs
SaulSMSF is a specialist provider of SMSF audits. We focus all our professional efforts into maintaining the knowledge, skills and qualifications required to deliver quality audits. Our business processes and systems have been developed to deliver cost-effective SMSF audits. We have even developed our own on-line application to streamline our communications and interface with clients.
3. Unparalleled experience
David Saul, the Managing Director of SaulSMSF, has over 20 years of experience with SMSFs. He is a long time member of the Self-Managed Super Fund Association of Australia (SPAA), one of the peak bodies for SMSF professionals.
David is among the first advisors in Australia to achieve the SMSF Specialist Advisor™ accreditation from SPAA. David is also a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants In Australia (ICAA), one of the leading groups of accounting professionals.
SaulSMSF is recognised as a trusted and experienced SMSF auditor. This trust was earned by maintaining a strong focus on independence in auditing processes, by clear communications and by understanding our clients’ needs. Few firms can match our experience and expertise in SMSF audit preparation and delivery.
4. Real independence
SaulSMSF meets the independence requirements of auditors as outlined in Section 290 of APES 110. Because the SMSF audit is outsourced from the accountant firm that has created or helped manage the SMSF, we provide real SMSF audit independence.
5. Professionally qualified
All SMSF Auditors must be university trained in accounting and their qualifications must include a recognised course of study in auditing. All our auditors are based in Australia and are approved under the SIS Regulations. They are qualified to provide an opinion of the status of each fund they audit, including the fund's compliance.
6. Advanced auditing platform
Our platform combines a state-of-the-art cloud-based software application together with our strong service standards. Regardless of the accounting system you use, we can automatically integrate the data seamlessly. The result is an efficient method of managing all stages of the audit process, from receiving clients’ working papers and source documents to completing audit reports. You receive real time access to reports on your clients’ audits—including their workflow status and compliance history.
No other SMSF audit firm in Australia provides a comparable auditing platform. It is one of the key reasons we are one of Australia’s most reliable and efficient SMSF auditors.
7. Reducing risk to your firm
Real audit independence improves long-term compliance of SMSFs, as trustees are provided with frank and honest feedback. This reduces risk for accounting firms and also provides peace of mind through knowing that the funds have been thoroughly scrutinised. We maintain and respect the relationship that accounting firms have with their SMSF clients.
8. Secure and confidential data storage
All information lodged with us is held on secure servers in Australian locations. Your clients’ data remains confidential and security protected in Australia. We comply with the Privacy Act 1998 (Cth).
9. Industry accreditation
All our auditors are members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA) and are registered with ASIC. Our Managing Director, David Saul, is an accredited SMSF Specialist Advisor™ under the SMSF Professionals Association of Australia (SPAA).
10. Professional integrity
SaulSMSF acknowledges and understands that we are working on behalf of accounting firms for their clients. We respect the relationship you have with your clients. We will always refer client matters arising from the audit process to you.
SaulSMSF is an established firm that specialises in undertaking independent SMSF audits on behalf of accounting firms and their clients. We aim to provide a high quality service that builds your reputation. Our core values of strength, integrity and reliability have made us highly trusted.
11. Workflow and capacity
Our advanced auditing platform allows us to manage high volumes of audits and to maintain our 2-week turnaround guarantee. We guarantee to meet lodgement deadlines if we receive documents and responses to queries on time.
12. Transparent fee structure
SaulSMSF has a transparent fee structure based on the size of the SMSF and the level of complexity of the audit. We inform clients up-front of the fee for service for audits. We also advise clients in advance if there is likely to be a variation in fee in the audit. Because we are very aware of the fee sensitivities associated with SMSF audits, we maintain a strong emphasis on efficiency and timeliness. However, maintaining a high level of integrity and independence is not compromised. Therefore, our service always represents good value.
