About

Superannuation Compliance Services (SCS)

SCS are experienced experts at managing, implementing and monitoring compliance, risk management, legislative research, audit and training services.

Our services have been developed to assist clients primarily in the superannuation industry and for anyone operating within the complex requirements of the financial services sector. SCS also provide ongoing training and development for superannuation fund trustees, staff and RG146 representatives.

What we do

We help our clients ensure they meet their federal government legislative and licensing requirements as efficiently as possible. We can do this without the client having to carry any substantial internal burden, yet with the comfort of knowing that you have experts in the industry who can share their experience of working with like-minded funds.

We’re an official RTO

SCS is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO #32151) approved to deliver nationally endorsed training for the provision of general and personal advice in superannuation.

People

Our staff are experts in the superannuation industry. On average each member of the team has a minimum of 10 to 15 years experience in superannuation and related industries. We undertake regular training and professional development to make sure that we’re at the forefront of developments in the industry.

We’re committed to ensuring continuity of personnel so we always have a dedicated relationship manager for each of our clients. This reduces the burden of re-training and familiarisation, and provides a quality of service that can’t be achieved by the rotation of different staff.
