Class has announced a partnership with The SMSF Academy as a result of the challenges accountants and administrators are facing due to the biggest changes to super in more than a decade.
The SMSF Academy’s legal, pension and compliance document service will be available through a tiered membership, where documents will be pre-populated by Class.
Members can generate unlimited electronic SMSF documents, subject to a fair-use policy, and will have access to monthly accredited continuing professional development courses on technical SMSF issues and strategies though the academy’s integrated learning and document platform, Campus.
Class chief executive Kevin Bungard highlighted the super changes had raised the bar for accountants when it came to understanding the implications of the new rules, as well as the compliance workload.
“Solutions like The SMSF Academy make it easier for SMSF administrators to meet their obligations so they can focus on growing their business,” Bungard said today.
“The integration between The SMSF Academy and Class brings even greater efficiency to the compliance and reporting process by allowing users to build compliant SMSF documents by importing fund data from Class.”
The SMSF Academy managing director Aaron Dunn said the business specialised in working with small to mid-sized accounting and financial planning practices to provide the most efficient training and tools for professionals.
“We’re looking forward to helping users of Class navigate the super changes and build a better SMSF business,” Dunn said.
Class has more than 50 partnerships with providers of financial services and products, which aim to bring efficiency gains for accountants and advisers, and, in turn, enhance support to their clients.
