Selecting an auditor that meets your real estate trust account audit needs is important for your business. At Madden Partners, we know that making the choice to switch needs to be a good step for you, with the confidence that you will be receiving better value for your business. There are a couple of things that you can do to keep on top of your obligations and facilitate a smooth transition when switching trust account auditors.
Keeping good records helps to reduce stress and disorganisation when it comes to meeting your compliance obligations. It is important to keep good records both for your trust accounts and also your compliance paperwork. Not only does this assist you in being as prepared as possible for audit time, it also maintains continuity for your business and gives you piece of mind that your real estate trust account operations are compliant with your state’s legislation.
These practices enable switching your auditor easier, giving you the confidence to know that the relevant paperwork is in hand to ensure a smooth transition. This gives you the power to be able to more confidently choose your auditor.
Being aware of your obligations
The regulations around operating your trust account vary from state to state, making it crucial to be aware of the body that oversees trust account operations and audits; guidelines for your account operations and what rules exist around audits. Knowing these obligations and keeping abreast of any changes is something in which we specialise and communicate to our clients.
At Madden Partners, we know the processes around notifying relevant state bodies of any changes in your real estate trust account operations and audits, and will advise you of your obligations. For example, under Queensland Fair Trading guidelines, both the licensee and the auditor need to advise Fair Trading within one month if you switch auditors and the reason for the change. We can assist in making any notifications as painless as possible.
