Event Details

Fundamental Principles & Practice of SMSF Audit

Introduction & Overview

The SMSF auditor’s responsibility is to (a) express an opinion on the financial report (Part A), and (b) provide reasonable assurance that the trustee(s) complied, in all material respects, with the relevant requirements of the SIS Act and Regulations (Part B). In forming this opinion the auditor is required to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence based on his/her assessment of risk.

Although the above may appear obvious to some, due to the complex and somewhat subjective nature of the SMSF audit, inconsistent opinions exist amongst auditors as to their audit obligations.  In particular, there remains varying opinions regarding the scope of the audit, how to document the risk identification and assessment procedures, and the quality and quantity of audit evidence required.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this session attendees will have enhanced or consolidated their understanding of exactly what it is they are and are not forming an opinion on, the risk identification and assessment process, the linkage between risk and further audit procedures, and of critical importance….how to document this understanding and processs.
