Legislative changes

The ‘accountants exemption’, under which we as accountants were authorised to give general advice, is no longer in place since 30 June 2016.

From July 1 2016, advisors must have a limited Australian Financial Services License (AFSL) to provide advice in superannuation. We do not have an AFSL and therefore do not provide any investment advice. This includes advice on setting up an SMSF.

If a prospective or current Trustee want advice to decide if an SMSF is right for them or planning aspects in an SMSF, you can contact a Financial Advisor. Some Financial Advisors we work with are as follows:

    Never thought Godwin’s Law would apply to SMSFs but you have managed it! Well done

    Godwin’s law (or Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies) is an Internet adage asserting that “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitlerapproaches 1″ —​ that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.

      This is just a bit of humor in an industry that can be bland. The analogies used is spot-on.
      The saying goes – “Many a true word is spoken in jest”

        I liked it so not complaining. :)

      As an accountant, we can execute decisions you make regarding super. But we can’t assist with your decision whether an SMSF is right for you or advise on the assets your SMSF should invest in. Please feel free to use one of the advisors listed on this page or else do a Google search.
