  • Topics were very relevant and timely.I came away with many points to either implement, discuss or take on board from the conference.

  • With increased scrutiny of SMSF auditors by regulators and recent successful litigation against SMSF auditors, the conference served as a timely and excellent health check of my practices. Presentation and pragmatic discourse by respected industry experts and senior ATO representative was assuring. Professionally and thoughtfully administered in all respects.

  • Information very informative well presented with real life examples slides and papers provided very helpful
