Smarter SMSF evolved from The SMSF Academy, founded in 2010 by accountant, Aaron Dunn and lawyer, Ian Glenister – both accredited SMSF specialists. Our focus is simple. To bridge the gap in training, education and tools so you can grow your business through self-managed super funds.
Our regular web-based training is popular because it enables members to access it whenever you like and as many times as you like. Fully mobile responsive, this cost effective solution works on any device so it is also available for practitioners on the go. It accommodates people who want to watch it individually or collectively as part of team training events. And because it is available anytime, it is perfect for reviewing and refreshing knowledge.
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, as well as FASEA requirements.
