How to recognise value from your SMSF auditor

SAUL SMSF provides a highly efficient and expert service at a competitive price. Variation in SMSF audit fees sometimes makes it difficult for accountants, advisors and trustees to recognise good value for the fee charged. 

SAUL SMSF 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 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.
