Information You won’t get from Unlicensed Accountants #22

March 31, 2020


Along with this raft of legislative change, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has also introduced new licensing requirements for accountants who work with and advise Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) Trustees. Only approx. 10% of accountants have complied with these changes to date.


As such if you, as many, consider your accountant would be your 1st port of call for Financial Advice, they will likely advise you, they are unable to provide the information you require & should consult a qualified Financial Adviser / Planner.


This is general advice only and you should seek expert financial advice from a qualified financial adviser before acting on any of the information covered in these topics.
