The changing nature of the regulatory requirements around the provision of financial advice has had a considerable impact on the accounting profession.

In order to legally provide retirement planning advice in relations to SMSFs, accountants must be authorised under an existing AFS Licensee or operate their own AFSL.

Capstone is one of the few national privately-owned licensees capable of guiding you into this new world. We’re working with accountants from across Australia to help them make the transition to the new regulatory environment.

Our services include:

  • Assistance with the initial training requirements (RG146)
  • A comprehensive induction program
  • Guidance with the advice process
  • Advice templates
  • Ongoing training and education including SMSF workshops
  • Compliance support delivered by our in-house professional standards team
  • Access to paraplanning services
  • Ability to transition to full advice

Essentially, we offer all the information, support and resources you need to continue to provide SMSF advice in accordance with the requirements of ASIC’s regulatory environment.

To discuss your particular situation in further detail, please enquire now.
