Here is a short checklist of important questions to ask if you want a quality and cost-effective SMSF auditor:

  • Does the auditor have efficient applications and systems to reduce administration charges?
  • Is the auditor a specialist with a high volume of work that creates economies of scale?
  • Is the auditor qualified and experienced?
  • Does the audit company have depth of resources and expertise?
  • Is the auditor providing data security?
  • Is the auditor compliant with the Privacy Act for personal information?
  • Does the auditor have the correct levels of professional indemnity insurance?
  • Is the auditor genuinely independent?
  • Does the auditor understand your client relationships?

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.
