Key things you need to know about an SMSF


An SMSF is required to be audited by a registered SMSF auditor who reviews the operation of the fund and completes a financial and compliance audit.  A financial and compliance audit must be completed before a fund’s SMSF annual return can be lodged with the ATO.

There are set timeframes around the appointment of auditors and the completion of audit reports.  As a trustee you also have responsibilities around providing information to auditors within set timeframes.

The AMP SMSF Administration service includes the appointment of a specialist independent auditor for your SMSF who will prepare the annual audit of your SMSF tax return.
