The Cloudoffis Bulletin - March Edition

Welcome to the March edition of the Cloudoffis Bulletin, with so much happening at Cloudoffis and across the industry, it’s a jam-packed issue.

Last month we attended the SMSF Association’s National Conference, Level Up. It was great to reconnect with our peers and feel the buzz of the industry up in Brisbane. A huge thanks to so many of our customers who came and said hi and had a chat about industry trends.

You may have noticed a few changes around Cloudoffis recently, with new team members joining, a refreshed brand, a new website and constant updates to the product. We’ve covered it all below.

Drawing from invaluable feedback on the daily challenges faced by auditors and accountants, the presentation showcased how Cloudoffis provides tailored solutions to foster better insights, enhance team capabilities and promote stronger collaboration.

Product update

Cloudoffis is leading the way to drive collaboration

The Cloudoffis products SMSF Sorted and SMSF Auditomation connects the processes of SMSF Accountants and Auditors like no other tools in the industry. Here’s how it works:

  • Accountants submit workpapers from Sorted to Auditomation with one click
  • The workpapers, docs and data are automatically organised for the auditor upon delivery, helping speed up preparation time
  • Accountants and auditors collaborate on queries & track job statuses securely within the Cloudoffis platform
  • Audited funds are securely stored in the SMSF Auditomation and SMSF Sorted platform and can be shared back to your favourite apps such as FYI Docs, Class and BGL 360.


Manual Audits

In an industry first for our Auditing community, we have simplified the process of manual fund uploads, helping auditors to seamlessly upload manual funds into the SMSF Auditomation platform.

With over 25% of funds still being processed manually, we recognised the urgent need for change to help our Auditing customers to service this segment of the market.

5 trends that piqued our interest in 2023 and our forecast for 2024

Recapping 2023

A year in review

It’s been a dynamic year for the SMSF Audit industry, and as we enter the festive season, at Cloudoffis we’ve been reflecting on the pivotal trends that have shaped the landscape throughout 2023.

Read on to see 5 trends that piqued our interest this year and our forecast for what 2024 will bring the industry.

Pricing is no longer a point of difference

Across the industry, auditors are grappling with an increasing challenge to distinguish their value proposition amidst stiff competition. Earlier in the year, we saw this lead to a heightened focus on price as the primary differentiator. However, the reliance on discounting posed a risk to profit margins, and we’ve since seen a strong trend in audit businesses approaching us who are conducting a reassessment of their current operational models to maintain their competitive edge. Leading businesses are differentiating themselves by offering more valuable services to their clients, such as easier ways to collaborate, better insights and faster turnaround times.

Technology Supporting Profitability

The industry has experienced a reduction in the number of auditors compared to 2022, influenced by natural attrition, ASIC’s stringent measures, and the impact of inflation and rising wage costs. Navigating these challenges has made it a demanding year for auditors seeking to maintain a profitable practice. These macro impacts have led to a spike in the number of auditors and accountants who are embracing forward-thinking strategies such as adopting technology to sustain profitability.

Data security

In 2023, Australians grappled with a surge in data breaches, impacting individuals and businesses nationwide. The consequences of data breaches on brand trustworthiness have been significant, leading to a rise in digital mistrust. Incidents from large institutions have prompted businesses to question the usage and protection of their clients’ data and we’re seeing a trend across the SMSF industry to pay more attention to how clients data is stored, shared and what level of access individuals within an auditing firm have to client information.

A Spotlight on Compliance

ASIC’s crackdown on compliance has reverberated through the industry, particularly after a period of no SMSF audits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Notably, ASIC cancelled 364 SMSF auditors licences in January for failure to lodge annual statements. Recent actions against firms for breaches of auditing standards, independence requirements, and registration conditions underscore the intensified regulatory scrutiny in turn, leading auditors are turning to technology for compliance support. We’re noticing an increase in the need for businesses to have a digital record at their fingertips to enable them to react quickly to audit requests and tighter ATO deadlines linked to SMSF processes.

Accountants Seeking Growth Partners

A noteworthy trend is the emergence of accountants adopting a growth mindset, actively seeking ways to expand capacity to meet increasing client demands. Given the accounting industry’s cloud-first orientation, many accountants are on the lookout for partners aligning with their current cloud-based processes and practices. We’re witnessing a shift towards stronger collaboration through technology between like-minded accountants and auditors to service the industry more effectively.

Outlook for 2024

As we approach 2024, auditors face an unprecedented requirement to safeguard their businesses against compliance risks and streamline operational processes for enhanced efficiency.

The evolving landscape demands a proactive approach to stay resilient in the face of challenges and capitalise on emerging opportunities. Luckily, with the advancement of technology aligned to a constantly changing environment, SMSF auditors who adopt technology and prioritise operational efficiencies across their workflows will be supported to deliver more audits faster, with more confidence, than ever before.

How pandemic breakout affected the business & brought a breakthrough

It’s a trying time for businesses. The global economy is reeling from the effects of Coronavirus, impacting the livelihood of people worldwide. In Australia, auditing and accounting businesses walk a tightrope—on one side, remote work has become a safety challenge-on the other, there’s no margin for error in SMSF accuracy and compliance. With the help of Cloudoffis, SMSF business leaders-like hmh Advisory’s Sarah Molinaro-have been able to innovate amidst adversity. Cloudoffis was built for SMSF to be ready for tomorrow-so hmh Advisory used it to stay in front of the remote work revolution. For over a decade Sarah ran the SMSF department at hmh Advisory-in their physical offices of course. “When lockdown hit, we had to adapt fast,” she says. “From one day to the next, our entire SMSF team was confined to home. Our paper-based accounting audit system was great—but it wasn’t going to cut it during the pandemic.”

Poised for paperless.

As a specialist, Sarah came to hmh Advisory to run the SMSF department. She’d re-designed and re-built their paper-based systems for very high standardisation. Sarah supervises a team of 3 to 4 staff and personally reviews every fund before it goes to audit. She’d been looking at going paperless—but was wary of risking quality, and wary of the initial admin investment. “We have over 240 funds, from $100k to $15M—with about half of our clients using our financial planning services. There’s high complexity around member balances, pensions, investments such property and options trading”. “We’d seen Cloudoffis at the SMSF Association conference in the Gold Coast”, says Sarah. “We knew from using their SMSF Auditomation product that they offer great support—but we feared the admin burden, and had some older staff who were unsure about the technology side”.

Pandemic plug and play.

Then lockdown hit—and software was a non-negotiable. Remote work was suddenly required. After APES-110 industry changes, hmh found auditors using Cloudoffis SMSF Auditomation, and made the jump to using Cloudoffis SMSF Sorted for the accounting side. Fears of too much admin were soon blown away. “We were up and running in a matter of weeks,” says Sarah, “The tools worked seamlessly with Class and our existing software, and the onboarding process was smooth—even for hesitant members of our team.” It helps that the Cloudoffis team is based in Australia—giving businesses access to all the local support and guidance they need to succeed. We also run on Amazon Australia servers covered by Australian security law and protocol. “No other provider came close to giving us the reassurance we got from Cloudoffis,” says Sarah, “Having support—and our data—here in Australia was priceless.”

Remote and flexible with the cloud.

For Sarah and her team, opting for cloud SMSF software meant they could continue to service their clients even while working from home-at the same standard and quality they’d built their reputation on. “We have team members  working in different locations. With a secure digital ecosystem, we can confidently deliver anywhere and anytime.” says Sarah, “Working remotely has been a big success.” Digital transformation might be a necessity during the remote revolution. But the future of SMSF isn’t just about today. At Cloudoffis, it’s about getting ready for tomorrow. Our SMSF tools leverage technology to transform underlying processes and supercharge SMSF businesses. “Cloudoffis technology reduces time spent on routine, repetitive tasks, resulting in a much more efficient end of year process,” Sarah says, “It improves profitability, efficiency and allows the team to better leverage their value elsewhere.”

Ready for tomorrow.

The pandemic has changed the way we all do business. For Sarah and the hmh Advisory team, it’s shown them the way of the future. “We can work from anywhere. We’re saving hours per fund. There’s no double handling. And we have an excellent workpaper system that’s easy to use,” says Sarah. There’s also a buzz about what’s possible with the new Cloudoffis AI features. “We use BT Panorama for financial planning clients —we’re keen to try the new features like AI driven, automated platform statement reconciliations—they could be a gamechanger for our efficiency”, says Sarah. Cloudoffis features have helped hmh go paperless, optimise processes and enjoy an end-to-end workflow. It’s transformed their ecosystem into a streamlined, automated, well-oiled machine—all in the midst of a pandemic. Sarah’s advice to SMSF accountants and administrators poised to go paperless with Cloudoffis? “Just do it,” says Sarah. “More and more  of our clients are sending documents electronically, -it’s the new normal and Cloudoffis helps you get ready for it”. The future knocks on every door—at Cloudoffis we’re here to help you answer.

SMSF Sorted 2.0 – Built for SMSF Administrators and Outsource Firms

The latest release from SMSF Sorted provides a range of new features designed to assist administrators and large outsourcing firms to manage their jobs, documents and data whilst at the same time, standardising and slashing processing time per fund. SMSF Sorted can now link to your customers (Accountants/Financial Planners), as well as to your Auditors, to ensure there is a single system to manage your complete workflow across multiple stakeholders.

1. Document Management System (DMS)

We’ve completely revolutionised document management by ensuring your document storage and lead schedule referencing is one and the same. The content in your PDF source documents is turned into structured searchable data for instant search-find referencing. Then, by using bookmark logic to save in-page reference points, you are able to build out a fully referenced lead schedule by simply saving docs in our DMS. Reviewers, customers and auditors can then click lead schedule links to specific in-page reference points saving document handling time all the way through the review chain.

2. Workflow Management (Internal & External)

SMSF Sorted offers you a single dashboard to manage your jobs, assign staff and track job statuses. This also includes management of external stakeholders; the added workflow functionality allows you to share, manage, communicate and track everything you need with your internal staff, customers and auditors. Our latest release incorporates a new itemised review/re-work/approval workflow for your external customers and auditors. Whether changes are requested by your customer or auditor, SMSF Sorted allows for document changes, re-importing of data from your admin software and then re-submitting for client approval or auditor sign off.

3. Portals Portals Portals…

To manage the external part of your workflow, SMSF Sorted allows you to create customer and auditor portals. Customer Portals Connect to your accountant and financial planner customers by creating them a free portal from SMSF Sorted. This allows your customers to share docs, review work, approve, raise/respond to queries, track statuses and request changes/re-work. Auditor Portals You can also connect to your auditor via SMSF SortedIf they are a non-Cloudoffis auditor, you can create them a free read-only version from SMSF Sorted or for best in class automation, connect to a Cloudoffis SMSF Auditomation subscriber to further enhance the automation on both sides of the process.  Either option allows you to transfer data, docs and review/respond to queries.

4. Job Standardisation and Automation

End-of-year processing is standardised and laid out in a clear dashboard to aid in processing, this vastly reduces quality and human error risk. A set of automated compliance checks help to ensure consistency by raising red flags and alerting users to certain points of interest. This includes checking for work test requirements, how effective tax has been allocated as well as if there were any lump sum payments, contra bank entries or negative balances through the year, to name just a few.

5. Customisation and Integration

The features in our DMS and Workflow have been designed specifically for your SMSF process. If for any reason you cannot completely replace your current DMS or Workflow tool, or if you have other proprietary software such as a client portal, we have the ability and experience to integrate into your existing systems to ensure you gain maximum efficiency by adding SMSF Sorted into your tech stack. Cloudoffis specialises in automation and workflow technology for accountants, administrators and auditors in the SMSF space. All systems compliment and integrate beautifully with leading SMSF Admin software like, Class and BGL.

API integration of Cloudoffis + BGL workpapers is an iconic feature

Software SMSF Adviser Logo

Also published by SMSF Adviser, powered by Momentum Media Written by Miranda Brownlee on 20 July 2020 Cloudoffis, one of Australia’s leading providers of cloud-based SMSF Preparation and Audit Automation technology today announced the successful integration of their “SMSF Auditomation” platform with BGL Workpapers–an extension of the pre-existing integration with BGL Simple Fund 360.

Enhanced features brought together with API integration.

A major key feature of this industry-first API integration between Cloudoffis + BGL Workpapers is the time-saving potential this automation provides beyond any other solution available on the market. The bookmarking and tagging of source documents in workpapers flow through into the audit file and align with each lead schedule item. The automated observations improve accuracy and provide peace of mind by being automatically checked and flagged for any errors. The auditor can address red flags as they’re found – not go searching for them. An inbuilt risk matrix is created as data is pulled through from BGL and analyzed. The pre-audit risk value alerts provide an opportunity for appropriate management. As a result, Cloudoffis “SMSF Auditomation” users (Auditors) will get broader access to Simple Fund 360 generated financial reports and documents tagged to the trial balance. Combined with Auditomation’s document recognition, direct data sourcing, and automation capabilities, this integration will help SMSF auditors streamline their audit processes, sharpen accuracy and reduce upward of 50% of their time per audit.

BGL and Cloudoffis; a 1–2 punch

BGL Corp acknowledged the longstanding relationship between both the businesses and Cloudoffis’ vision in further streamlining the SMSF process from engagement to completion. “At BGL, we are a strong advocate of developing ecosystem partnerships to help businesses streamline processes. Partnering with Cloudoffis is an example of two leading technology providers collaborating for the benefit of both our clients. BGL currently has over 350 partners as part of our Ecosystem” said Ron Lesh, BGL’s Managing Director. Integration with BGL’s Simple Fund 360 (OR Workpapers) reflects Cloudoffis’ continued commitment to helping SMSF providers automate and streamline their processes.

  “At Cloudoffis we continue to refine our SMSF Preparation and Audit Automation solutions to help the industry and our users find efficiencies across processes and maximize return on investment,” said Viral Kanabar, Co-Founder & Director at Cloudoffis.

Workpapers were created by BGL to prepare and review workpapers from data in SimpleFund 360 and complete any necessary checklists. Cloudoffis’ other compliance preparation solution “SMSF Sorted” (for Accountants) can complement Workpapers by providing workflow notifications and tracking, dashboards, and a comprehensive query and review module; couple this with integration to Cloudoffis’ “SMSF Automation” solution (for Auditors) for a highly efficient, compliant, end-to-end SMSF workflow solution. Cloudoffis and BGL can be used as stand-alone products but operate with an integrated 1–2 punch, keeping SMSF together, as manual processes become siloed, to remain streamlined from SMSF accounting through to auditing.
