What you need to do before investing in property

What you need to do before investing in property

In the last edition of The Inside Word, we posed a series of questions for you to ask your association regarding the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision in respect of the removal of the Accountants SMSF Exemption.

Accountants around Australia are asking these same questions of Accountable.

Most of the questions are focused on how it will impact their practice on a day to day basis, including:

  • What will it all cost?
  • Can I make money for the expense, effort and resources that I need to put in?
  • Do I bite the bullet now or wait?
  • Do I have the time or inclination to go down this path if no tangible benefit?
  • If I wait, will I risk losing my SMSF clients or having to refer them to a financial planner?

Our experience counts

Accountable has a proven track record in guiding and mentoring accountants in how to take advantage of the removal of the Accountants SMSF Exemption and to generate new, incremental revenue opportunities.
