As National Lawyers we are able to develop and produce SMSF documentation throughout Australia. All Australia wide document preparation, client liaising, certifications are handed and provided by teams that work under the direct supervision of both Rowan Astill and David Astill.

With our focus directed to professionals such as Accountants and Financial Advisors, we offer those professionals who provide us with repeat instructions the option for our practices to integrate our databases so that once the information is uploaded through the advisors database, that information is uploaded, on a real-time basis to our database. Having this ability saves time by removing the necessity of “double data” and limits risk in that there is less of a possibility of a mistake by entering the data only once.
