How to do an amended actuarial certificate | Accurium

As we head towards the 2019 income year deadline for SMSF tax returns on 15 May 2020, and into the time of year when you pull out all those complex SMSF cases left to last, we thought it an opportune time to highlight one of the key features of Accurium’s actuarial certificate system - how to do an amendment free of charge.

In the 2019 income year around 13% of actuarial certificate applications submitted to us were amendments. Most commonly amendments are completed to fix a mistake in data entry or add additional transactions which may not have been known when the certificate was originally ordered. We understand these things can happen and offer all amendments free of charge.

Applying for an amended actuarial certificate is easy and free. If you are unsure as to whether an amended actuarial certificate is required, or if you are having issues with submitting an amended application, please give our SMSF team a call on 1800 203 123.

Note: With the 15 May 2020 deadline fast approaching for the 2018-19 SMSF annual returns (SAR) lodgement for many SMSFs, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has recognised that some accountants and auditors may require more time due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information see the ATO's statement here:
