Audit & Assurance

Devonport, Hobart and Launceston Tasmania

While the number of firms providing audit services has decreased in recent years, our local, Tasmanian audit team continues to grow. Our auditors embrace the challenges of increasingly onerous auditing standards.

Our audit service is built around pragmatic advice, independence and responsiveness. We remain at the forefront of our profession, but our size and locations in Devonport, Hobart and Launceston mean we provide a personal service that is timely, flexible and cost competitive.

By investing in our human and technical resources, the standard of our expertise is second to none. However, being a Tasmanian owned and operated firm allows us to provide a personal service that is timely, flexible and cost competitive. All decisions and sign-offs are made locally with no delays caused by referrals to other offices or waiting for additional layers of file reviews. And you deal directly with the person in charge of your audit.

Directors Ben Coull and Gareth Atkins are both Registered Company Auditors, each with over 25 years’ auditing experience.

Internal Audit

Internal audit has evolved.

What used to be a financial compliance function, relevant to large corporate and public-sector entities, is now a highly adaptable tool for businesses of all types and sizes.

Synectic’s Tasmanian team of internal audit specialists focus on more than just your business’s financial aspects. We delve into the broader operations of your business, applying our analytical minds to any aspect of your business activities.

SMSF Audit

For many Self-managed Super Fund (SMSF) members, their SMSF holds the bulk of their retirement savings. It is important to get the compliance and record-keeping requirements of the fund right. Synectic’s SMSF auditors make a significant difference in the delivery of audit services, working closely with financial advisers and SMSF administrators. Tasmanian owned and operated, we pride ourselves on our accessibility and technical expertise.

Quality and experience: 

Our auditors have the depth of knowledge that comes from a successful track record in the industry and ongoing commitment to professional development. And we have a skilled team to back us up.


Our quick turnaround times are essential in keeping lodgement targets on track. We use first-class technology to create efficiencies and ensure you get value. Our systems integrate with most SMSF administration platforms.


We respect and protect the critical relationship between advisers and their clients.

We never send your work off-shore. You will get to know us and will have direct access to the people doing your work.

Transparent pricing:

We make sure you know all charges before the audit starts. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all flat fee, which risks sacrificing quality for the sake of volume. We offer a carefully considered fee that reflects the work and risks involved with individual funds.

I appreciated dealing with an audit team that understood our business and was willing to take the time to explain when necessary.

The team at Synectic are a pleasure to deal with. Friendly and professional.

We would certainly have no hesitation in engaging them again for similar work.

The audit is excellent value for money.

Telephone contact was extremely helpful; when the person recognises your name and organisation it is most reassuring.
