Some Key Features Described in Detail
Dynamic Trial Balance
Our Dynamic Trial Balance has been developed with the intent to supersede Leadsheets, streamline audit documentation and make reviewing SMSF Audit engagement files a simple and efficient process.
Powerful features like automated Materiality Indicators, year-on-year comparisons and a variety of view options that make referencing and agreeing balances to the financial statements quick and easy.
During an SMSF audit, the auditor often needs to liaise with the fund’s accountant or administrator to request additional documentation, or ask questions relating to their audit. This communication can be challenging to manage, especially where there are a number of audits being done at a time.
Our powerful Query document technology in SMSF Audit though makes this process simple.
Auditors can record their requests and questions in a Query document in their engagement file, then submit it directly to the relevant contact to address. They will receive an automatic notification in their inbox with a link to access the document. Then as they address your queries, their responses feed directly back into your audit file – no more emails and manual filing of responses!
Accessing and Referencing PDF documents
As our clients and our industry are progressively moving to paperless work processes, providing documentation in PDF format is becoming a very common practice. This is especially evident when it comes to audit evidence – by far, the majority of supporting workpapers in audit engagement files are now PDFs.
So, to assist auditors with performing audits paperlessly and efficiently, PDF documents saved in SMSF Audit engagement files can be opened within the file, in your web browser – there is no need to download and open these documents in a PDF program.
Annotations Tool Available for PDF for more complete Audit Trail
As well as accessibility, our popular Annotation tool can be used within PDF documents in SMSF Audit – easily markup checks performed, create hyperlinks to supporting workpapers or websites, and add notes anywhere in a PDF.
This powerful feature makes the documentation phase of the audit engagement quick and simple, and provides an easy-to-follow electronic audit trail for reviewers to follow.
Automated Shares Testing Worksheet
This tailored worksheet has been built to assist auditors with testing and documenting work performed on shareholdings of SMSFs.
All shareholding Trial Balance accounts will be listed in this worksheet, along with share codes and the number of shares held in each for funds imported from Class or BGL360 (this information can easily be entered into the worksheet for other funds).
Then, using 30 June share price information sourced from an approved ASX-licensed third party information vendor, the worksheet automatically recalculates the value of each holding and highlights any variances – automating this normally manual process and saving you precious time!
