Professional Services

Operating your own Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) provides you with the ability to choose your investment options and be in control of your retirement. Running your own super fund can provide a range of advantages but involves considerable responsibility and commitment.

Self-Managed Super Funds you total control of your Superannuation by allowing you to choose where you invest. This control will allow you to consider investing in a wide range of investments, such as Term Deposits, Domestic & International Shares, and Residential & Commercial Investment Property.

An SMSF can be a great vehicle to take control of your Super but an SMSF may not be suitable for everyone. iCompass works with each of our clients to provide accurate, consistent and clear information to help support your investment decisions, understand your rights and entitlements, and meet your obligations.

Our SMSF clients enjoy a complete service package, with SMSF iCompass licensed as a provider of financial management and professional advice for the SMSF sector, and our partnership with Unison Wealth Management provides additional support services. This means that we can provide an end-to-end service encompassing reporting, advice and compliance or we can work with your financial planner and focus on the core accounting aspects of your SMSF. Our team works closely with you to help you make the most of your money, now and in the future. We work hard to provide accurate advice and factual information, ensuring our clients can receive the best possible results.

New laws governing the provision of SMSF Advice

The Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC) requires by law that from 1 July 2016 that any accountant who wishes to work in the area of Self Managed Superannuation and provide their clients with any form of strategic advice, must be formally authorised to do so. The accountant must achieve specific education and licencing qualifications or accreditations and be licensed either directly with ASIC or via a holder of an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL).

We are pleased to confirm that SMSF iCompass has achieved these licensing requirements with Unison Wealth Management (AFSL No: 28621) and our principal, Anthony Luvisetto, has also attained the required individual licencing educational requirements to continue to provide clients with expert general strategy advice.

As part of these new regulations, commencing 1 July 2016, any strategy advice provided by SMSF iCompass will be done via the issue of a formal Statement of Advice (SoA). These new requirements provide us with the opportunity to deliver a more comprehensive service to our clients who either have an existing Self-Managed Superannuation Fund, or are considering establishing one.

What our Clients Say

“I entrusted Anthony with the management of my SMSF due to the trust developed in managing our business accounting. Anthony provides clear, easy to follow instructions and I feel confident that my SMSF is in competent hands.”

Cosimo Graps

“Our fund involved several parties with partners and we also needed to work out the best way to purchase a building through our super fund. Anthony was able to put us onto the right financial advisor who then put us in touch with the right bank to organise this. Anthony had the contacts that enabled us to move forward and was able to assist with any other questions we had in relation to this. His network of contacts was invaluable.”
