iCare Super was established on 15 March 2012 by a group of SMSF specialists. Since its inception, it has become one of the major independent SMSF services providers in Australia.
In the last 10 years, we have found there is no university in Australia that offers any degree-related course for Australian superannuation system and SMSF accounting and audit. This has resulted in huge skill shortage in SMSF industry.
iCare Super has been recruiting and training accounting talent and encouraging graduates to be specialised in SMSF compliance work, including accounting, audit, consulting and financial planning services. We are a fast growing accounting firm in the field of SMSF and offering our scholarship program in order to find and award prospective future SMSF specialists.
What is a SMSF?
A self managed super fund (or SMSF for short) is one of the best options for those who want to exercise control over their own superannuation investments. Self managed superannuation has been around for more than three decades. Today, it stands as the largest superannuation sector, given the huge size of its funds and assets as well as domestic and international investment opportunities.
