BGL Corporate Solutions (BGL), Australia's leading provider of company compliance, self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) and investment portfolio management software, is proud to announce its multi-award-winning SMSF administration software, Simple Fund 360, now integrates with the Fintech platform, accountantsGPS, to provide its clients with a new digital SMSF Check-Up Report.

"We are thrilled to add Melbourne-based Fintech, accountantsGPS, to the BGL Ecosystem," said BGL's Managing Director Ron Lesh. " integration allows Simple Fund 360 clients to produce a new SMSF Check-Up Report using accountantsGPS; proprietary technology - a first for the SMSF market and available exclusively to BGL clients."
“The digital SMSF Check-Up Report provides a comprehensive analysis of a fund’s compliance and financial situation to evaluate how a fund is progressing in many key areas,” continued Lesh. “The report includes SMSF documentation, investment performance, investment policy development, contribution strategies, investment property performance (including debt position), insurance and estate planning. The report will help Simple Fund 360 clients to determine whether the Trustees and Members of a fund will meet their compliance obligations as well as their longer-term investment and retirement goals.”
George Haramis, CEO and Co-Founder of the Fiduciary Group and accountantsGPS, said: “As one of Australia’s leading digital providers of personal financial advice, we are absolutely thrilled to have progressed our digital technology capabilities to develop the SMSF Check-Up Report. It is particularly exciting for our business to partner exclusively with BGL and offer this unique and valuable service to their accounting clients. Accountants can now undertake a comprehensive analysis of their clients’ SMSF across a number of key areas adding additional value to Trustees and Members and eliminating the time, cost and angst of trying to create a report manually, if achievable at all. It is a long-awaited development for the SMSF sector that has finally arrived.”
Jeevan Tokhi, Head of Simple Fund 360 at BGL, said: "The integration allows BGL clients to log in to the accountantsGPS platform using their Simple Fund 360 credentials. Clients can then authorise Simple Fund 360 to pass information relating to all or a select number of their SMSFs to the accountantsGPS platform. BGL's API will pre-fill 95+% of the information required to complete the SMSF Check-Up Report, making this a simple streamlined process that takes just BGL Corporate Solutions Pty Ltd Suite 2, 606-608 Hawthorn Road, Brighton East, VIC 3187 a few minutes per fund. Importantly, it means clients can provide the report for their SMSFs without requiring an Australian Financial Services (AFS) licence."

BGL's free and open API is used extensively across the industry. Over 350 data feed and integration partners in the BGL Ecosystem deliver a holistic experience to our clients.
