THE AUDITORS INSTITUTE LTD

A united voice for All Auditors.

 

In 2023, we underwent a comprehensive rebranding initiative, repositioning the SMSF AAA as "The Auditors Institute Ltd." Concurrently, we introduced a new membership category, "Associate," extending a warm welcome to Company Auditors beyond the realm of SMSF Auditors to join our ranks. 

 

Our goal was to establish a unified platform, effectively advocating for all Auditors and fostering a collective front to address the enduring challenges confronting the auditing profession.

 

Since the rebranding, 25 new members joined the institute, with 15 of them being non-SMSF Auditors. This noteworthy achievement has propelled our institute's total membership to an impressive 720 individuals. Among them, 695 are SMSF Auditors, and within this group 90 members who also serve as Company Auditors. This remarkable growth underscores the increasing support and engagement within our vibrant community.

Our united and independent Auditors Institute community helps you succeed and grow with your clients.

Four SMSF auditors united their expertise and voice and submitted a response to Treasury about proposed reforms to SMSF legislation in 2018.

 

Those Budget announcements raised a real risk to the integrity, cost-effectiveness and compliance of work done by SMSF audit professionals. The changes threatened the core of SMSF auditors’ professionalism because they conflicted with existing Auditing Standards. Increased costs to Trustees loomed without achieving the reduced bureaucracy envisioned for all involved in the SMSF industry.

 

Fortunately, the proposed changes were never legislated. 

 

Having come together to address this issue, these four professionals realised the necessity and opportunity to create an organisation to protect the interests of SMSF auditors into the future and safeguard the broader SMSF industry and their Trustees.

 

In that moment, SMSF AAA was established, and today founding members Sam Marotta and Gino Coiera are still on the Board of Directors.

 

SMSF AAA continued to grow, serving the SMSF audit community by providing advocacy, access to responsive SMSF audit specialists, a huge technical knowledge repository and a supportive, diverse, and collaborative membership.

Now in 2023, SMSF AAA has rebranded to The Auditors Institute. Extensive member feedback and demand for audit resources and support to be available to a wider audience of accountants and auditor led to the rebrand. As The Auditors Institute, we are committed to supporting auditors and accountants with our SMSF Auditor Membership and Associate Memberships.
