Recent estimates provided by Count Financial show that for many SMSF firms, compliance with the limited licence regime has cost them tens of thousands of dollars and substantial hours away from their businesses. Speaking at a panel session at the SMSF Association national conference, Count Financial head of practice recruitment Euan Sneyd said while the compliance process with the limited licensing regime has often been touted as a straightforward process, for most accounting firms, the entire process has taken them an average of 292 days.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is visiting accounting firms to ensure they are complying with the new licensing regime to advise on self-managed superannuation funds (SMSF) rather than continuing to advise without adhering to licensing requirements, it warned.

The corporate regulator has announced that in coming months it will initiate a major shadow shopping project focused on advice given on SMSFs, particularly advice given in relation to establishing a fund. Speaking at the SMSF Association’s national conference, ASIC deputy chair Peter Kell said one of the two areas of focus ASIC has over the next few months is the ongoing work it is doing to lift the standards of advice and “to focus on areas where [it] believes there may be risks of poor advice”.

Kath and her team at L4A were able to clearly analyse and recommend the level of licensing our people required. The process was efficient and painless and we found the summary webinar to be of great benefit. Thanks Kath.

I really appreciate your time and knowledge at yesterday’s session. Things are a lot clearer now. I really do agree with you that this is an opportunity for us accountants and we need to start looking at it as that.
The matching process saved me time (and money!) by fast tracking my understanding of the legislation and the decisions to be made. The independence of your service was a paramount criteria for me.
