Offer your employees a choice of fund 

Many employees are entitled to choose the fund their super contributions are paid into. As their employer, you need to provide them with a standard choice form, and nominate a default fund if they don't choose a fund.

Adding to your super 

You can add to your super by entering into a salary sacrifice arrangement with your employer, making personal super contributions, transferring super from foreign super funds or you may be eligible for government contributions.

There are limits on how much you can contribute to your super each year.

Reciprocal auditing arrangements 

Auditors need to conduct an independent audit. Auditors who engage in reciprocal auditing arrangements are at risk of breaching the independence requirement. 

Approved SMSF auditors who continue to engage in reciprocal auditing arrangements will be subject to increased scrutiny. Referral to ASIC may result if the ATO considers SMSF auditors have failed to meet the independence requirements.
