Guide to SMSF Audit Cost

The SMSF (self-managed super fund) is sometimes referred to as a DIY super fund. They are pension funds available in Australia and are similar to other pension funds in that SMSF invests contributions made by members, provides benefits to members when they retire and provides benefits if the beneficiary dies when the member dies.You can also opt for SMSF tax return & audit services & get free consultation.

The main difference between SMSF and other types of pension funds is that members of the SMSF are also the trustees or directors of the corporate trustee.
