Simply watch at your own pace then take the quiz to confirm your progress and CPD points. Smarter SMSF offers regular updates on SMSF specialist topics, sourced directly from leading industry professionals such as accountants, financial planners and lawyers. Every quarter we share ‘the changing face of SMSF’ – a technical and regulatory update that keeps members informed on key compliance issues as they arise.
All training is accredited for professional development obligations via the SMSF Association, FPA Australia and the major accounting bodies.
We also maintain a CPD register that for you to determine the ongoing knowledge strengths of your staff.
