SMSF service providers SuperConcepts and leading financial services provider BDO Australia are proud to announce a new collaboration that will benefit trustees, practitioners and clients of both organisations.

The organisations each have long-standing SMSF industry participants and have worked together to provide positive client outcomes for over 15 years.

Under the new collaboration SuperConcepts’ administration software SuperMate will continue be used by BDO Australia nationally while BDO Australia will also join SuperConcepts’ panel of auditors allowing SuperConcepts clients access to high-quality audits backed by the industry experts at BDO who understand the SMSF industry.

SuperConcepts has consistently worked with BDO to improve the software and user experience for BDO clients. This announcement is an extension of that commitment by adding an audit offering to SuperConcepts clients.

SuperConcepts SMSF software, SuperMate, which is already used by BDO, offers high levels of automation and processing consistency through its standardised approach to SMSF Administration.

“We are excited to extend our relationship with BDO Australia,” SuperConcepts Acting CEO Grant Christensen said. “By building on BDO Australia’s SMSF audit expertise and continuing to invest in SuperMate, we believe we can provide optimal experiences for our respective customers and teams.”

BDO Australia Financial Services Partner Geoff Rooney said that SuperConcepts clients could expect continued quality audits and independence through the expanded relationship.

"This expansion reflects both firms’ focus on building trusted relationships with market-leading and innovative companies, to ensure exceptional client service - through a high-quality, effective and reliable service," he said.

"With a renewed and ongoing focus on audit quality, BDO is well-positioned to provide an improved experience for SuperConcepts clients, using our leading global audit methodologies.”

"At BDO, we are passionate about driving trust and transparency in the superannuation sector and ensuring high-quality audits by applying a risk-based approach. We believe this expanded relationship is another step towards continuing to support the sector more broadly."

The announcement will see BDO Australia leverage SuperMate, SuperConcepts’ SMSF software, for automation of their clients SMSF administration and SuperConcepts will introduce BDO Australia to its auditor panel \for the benefit of SuperConcepts clients.
