Audit & Assurance

While the number of firms providing audit services has decreased in recent years, our audit team continues to grow. We embrace the challenges of increasingly onerous auditing standards.

Our service is built around pragmatic advice, independence and responsiveness. We remain at the forefront of our profession, but our size and locations mean we provide a personal service that is timely, flexible and cost competitive.

By investing in our human and technical resources, the standard of our service is second to none. However, being an independent, locally owned and operated firm allows us to provide a personal service that is timely and cost competitive. All decisions and sign-offs are made locally with no delays caused by referrals to other offices or waiting for additional layers of file reviews. And you deal directly with the person in charge.

Directors Ben Coull and Gareth Atkins are both Registered Company Auditors, each with over 20 years auditing experience.

The real strength of the Synectic audit team lies in the qualifications and experience of its people

SMSF audit

Our Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) audit service delivers in 5 key areas that make a significant difference for the SMSF administrator in the delivery of audit services to your clients.

  1. Quality and experience: Our auditors have the depth of knowledge that comes from a successful track record in the industry and ongoing commitment to professional development. Just as importantly, we have the team to back us up.
  2. Efficiency: Our quick turnaround times are essential in keeping your clients happy and lodgement targets on track. We use technology as a great enabler here, including the ability for our systems to integrate with your administration platform.
  3. Protection of your client relationships: We respect and protect your critical relationship with the client.
  4. Communication: We are flexible to fit in with your preferences for dealing with clients, including how contentious matters are dealt with. Equally, you will benefit from getting to know us and will have direct access to us, rather than finding your work has been off-shored.
  5. Transparent pricing: You need to know what you client will be charged before the audit starts. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all flat fee, which risks sacrificing quality for the sake of volume, but offer a carefully considered fee structure that reflects the audit work and risks arising from the different circumstances of individual funds.
