CPA Review

We are delighted to advise you the Plus 1 Group have had a very successful Professional Standards review with CPA Australia with the best result by some way we have ever achieved.

The CPA review is conducted every 4 years and requires substantive testing of the caliber of our internal work papers, Quality Assurance, Compliance, Professional Development and Training and Statutory requirements across taxation, GST and both general and specific advice.

We were also approached by our comparable industry professional body to consider moving to their designation.  Whilst we were extremely honored to be considered, we have decided to stay with our current professional accreditation.

Thank you to those who have given letters of recommendation and made their files available for the review process.  We hope you are equally thrilled to know the quality of your files are maintained by Best in Practise standards.

From the 1st July 2016, the ATO is requiring all employers to comply with new regulations relating to the payments of superannuation. SuperStream is a package of reforms designed to enhance the 'back office' of superannuation and is part of the Australian Government's Stronger Super reform.

SuperStream provides a simpler, consistent method for making super contributions, registering new employee super accounts and providing associated data. There are a number of options available for employers to use which ensure they meet the new reporting requirements. These include software packages such as Xero and MYOB, as well as Clearing Houses provided by the ATO, Retail, and Industry Funds.

If we haven't already done so a member of our team will be contacting you shortly to ensure you are ready for the 1 July deadline.
