SMSF strategy and coaching services

SMSF strategy, coaching and consulting services (including SMSF borrowing arrangements) are charged at hourly rates agreed before we get started.
* Fees may increase if there is a significant amount of investment trading during the year and little investments on hand at the end of the year or if the super fund is carrying on business activities. If in doubt please contact our office for a quote before proceeding.
* Add $220 per investment for overseas direct property and overseas unlisted shares due to the difficulty in verifying these investments for audit purposes.
* Foreign currency conversion will be processed as an additional fee of $165 per hour.
* Fees do not include actuarial certificates. If your fund requires an actuarial certificate please add $275 including GST for a tax exempt percentage report. If you require a capital adequacy report please contact our office for a quote.
* Audit fees will be increased if compliance breaches are identified and/or the audit report needs to be qualified for either financial audit matters or SIS compliance breaches.
