SMSF toolbox

Compliance and audit

Over the last decade Self Managed Superannuation Fund’s (‘SMSFs’) have become increasingly popular.

For those who have been wanting more control over their superannuation or particularly for those in small business who can take advantage of different structuring opportunities they have been an invaluable investment structure.

However many people with existing SMSFs with Financial Planning firms or the bigger investment banks are however beginning to look closer at the cost of running these funds which has risen in recent years.

Traverse Accountants offers SMSF compliance services for:

  • Interim advice on the taxation implications of investment sales and purchases;
  • Preparation of annual financial statements and annual trustees minutes;
  • Preparation and lodgement of SMSF annual income tax return
  • Facilitation of the separate annual audit;
  • Provision of additional compliance advice where required.
Financial Planners & Traverse Accountants

We are not financial planners, however we have a strong affiliation with ASX Listed financial planning group Fiducian, whom we believe have their core business focused on being a true trusted advisor to their clients.

This is complementary to our own business model and beliefs and means that you and your SMSF have the best in planning and estate planning advice.

Fiducian Group is a Company founded on “Integrity, Trust and Expertise”.

Their business model covers many aspects of the financial markets and their roles range from funds management to portfolio services.

We have a working relationship with Alison Williamson CFP, who is a Senior Financial Advisor with the Group.

A Senior Certified Financial Planner (CFP) is the Financial Planning Association’s highest professional designation and we are fortunate to be able to extend our working relationship with Alison to our clients.

Together with Alison we can assist with:

  • SMSF investments and fund allocations
  • Pensions and asset funding capability
  • Insurance of all types
  • Estate planning and wills
  • Banking and deposit products

Strategic banking relationship with NAB
NAB has long been associated as the bank for professionals and successful businesses. We have a referral arrangement with NAB that gives us the contacts to get you access to the right decision makers for the financing and banking facilities that you need. We have worked with NAB and their products for individuals and businesses of all shapes and sizes.

The borrowing rates and packages are more competitive than the other banks and their deposit products are just as solid. Recent marketing campaigns to differentiate the NAB from the ‘other banks’ have made them even more competitive and focused on creating value. Even though we have long supported NAB we believe that this focus on client value is a common strategic objective with Traverse. Our referral arrangements give us the opportunity to introduce you to advisors who will assist with:

  • Deposit products
  • Personal borrowing (loans, credit cards, margin lending)
  • Business banking and borrowing
  • Asset leasing and finance
  • Foreign exchange
  • SMSF deposits and borrowing packages
  • Private Banking for High Net worth individuals
