5 Fatal Mistakes When Choosing an SMSF Accountant

1.    I have all my accounts and taxes for the SMSF,  business and investments by the one accountant – its easier and they can do it all.

Superannuation is completely different to your business structures and strategies,  even investing in property within a SMSF is different to that outside a SMSF. There are a raft of additional regulations and rules and potential missed strategies within your SMSF. Don’t be fooled in thinking your accountant has it all covered - We are all over SMSF's including the changes and we work with your business accountant to ensure you don’t miss out and optimise the benefits of having an SMSF. 

2I rely on my accountant about SMSF advice, if they says its ok, I’ll be fine.
An innocent mistake or innocent breach from advice from an advisor, regardless of who it is, is no excuse, you’re the trustee so the buck stops with you. Don’t risk getting advice from someone who isn’t a specialist, there is no reduction in fines, or a get out of jail pass based on advice you received. Get the right advice the first time from us. 
3. Our SMSF is straight forward and simple we don’t need a specialist. 
SMSF’s involve not only your retirement, they involve your estate planning in case you don’t spend it before you die, who is going to get this. Its treated separately to your will. No SMSF is the same, everyone’s SMSF and the members within it are very different with different family structures, investment risks and goals. We’ve seen them all and I personally see each SMSF as my own, always keeping in mind your family dynamics and wishes.
4.  I’ve been told I can’t do much just pay my taxes and be thankful. 
100% we should be thankful, however, why should you be worse off simply because you didn’t get the right advice. We’ve seen the same couple earn the same taxable income yet, be worse off cash in the hand simply because they didn’t get the right advice before retiring. 
5. My SMSF Acountant charges less than the others to lodge the SMSF Accounts. 
You can’t risk a couple of hundred dollars for the sake of having an appropriately qualified adviser at your fingertips knowing their stuff and being able to give you advice you can count on. Its not just about lodging tax returns, you need advice all year before you get to 30th June.  Effective Strategies are put in place during the year not after 30th June.

More Testimonials

Matt & Penny

Tania Magon from Maven Advisors was referred to us after we had many issues with our SMSF and our then accountant who set up our SMSF was not willing to assist us. Tania’s expertise and knowledge of all facets of self-managed super funds was absolutely amazing. We were under immense pressure with our complex issues and Tania was very professional, understanding and compassionate at all times. Nothing was ever an issue for Tania and no matter how big the issue was Tania handled it all for us with the utmost professionalism, accuracy and efficiency. We can not thank Tania enough for the unexpected and amazing outcome she achieved for us both. We know that if we had not come to Tania it would definitely have been a very different outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending Tania to all. The outcome she achieved for us was truly amazing. Thankyou Tania you are brilliant.
