Our full day SMSF accredited training events are built for practitioners by SMSF specialists.

Following on from a successful series of SMSF Day events around Australia in April 2018, this year’s events will be kicking off at the end of March 2019.

As an election year, along with the recommendations from the Royal Commission and Productivity Commission, the landscape is expected to further change and impact SMSFs.  The SMSF day provides insights into the latest technical developments and through the training, provides interactive case studies and demonstrations of the SMSF pecialist documents you need.
