How We Issue Our CPD Certificates
As of 1st July 2021
Recently, the professional bodies have changed their Continuing Professional Development requirements (CAANZ CR7 and IPA Pronouncement 7).
Both CAANZ and the IPA are now requiring that you have "verifiable" CPD for at least 90 hours in a triennium.
If you watch a recording then this may not be considered formal training. Because of this we are now issuing different CPD certificates to ensure that those that attend live training can guarantee that this is verifiable CPD.
How do we issue our CPD certificates?
➜ Whilst you will still get the full hours on the certificate we will divide those hours into hours attended and hours watched online. ➜We have systems in place to allow us to monitor who attends and who actually views our online content and we need to show the professional bodies that we are ensuring that our subscribers are actually completing the training.
What counts as 'formal' and 'informal' training?
➜ If you attend a live webinar you will receive a certificate to say you attended (verified).
➜ Otherwise, you will receive a certificate to say you watched the recording.
➜ Whilst we would advise that you keep the slides etc we cannot guarantee that CAANZ or the IPA will consider watching a recording as being verified hours
➜ You can gain 'verified' hours for pre-recorded sessions, you will just need to complete a short quiz at the end of the session within 14 days and if you pass then you will get the full hour as verified training.
➜ Within 14 days, if you opt-out of the test it will simply be an hour of training. This time frame will give you sufficient time to do your online training as well as give us a deadline to issue you a CPD certificate based on whether the quiz has been completed or not.
There is also now a push to mandate different types of training
IPA➜ The IPA has a totally new requirement from 1 July 2021 and this will require their members to complete 20 hours of Professional & Ethical Standards and another 20 hours of Management and Professional Skills. ➜ Don't worry, we will be offering alternate CPD pathways where you can choose to do 20 hours of the alternate topics along with 20 hours of tax training in a given year so you can gain your 120 hours. (Read about IPA changes here)
CA➜CAANZ now require you to complete 2 hours of ethics as part of your 120 hours over a triennium. We will provide one hour of ethics each year as part of our CPD program.

What Our Clients Have Said About Peter Adams
"In late February 2018, Peter and I discussed one of my clients and a possible Estate Planning Exercise for them.
I presented a proposal to the client recently and today they have agreed to the proposal. We're going to look at their super as well (Mum and Dad are close to the $1.6m caps) and combined with the Estate Planning exercise, they're just signed off on a $26K + GST contract.
The past 18 months have been a lot of "head down tail up" in this transition to my new business life. It is only with Peter's input that Tuesday afternoon that it dawned on me what we should be doing for this client. I wanted to thank them sincerely for being in the sounding board that afternoon and raising with me this idea.
I appreciate it immensely. "
"I couldn't speak more highly of the experience I have had with Peter to date...
- Excellent technical support as access to the owner of the business
- Fantastic turnaround time
- Managed to get me an SOA for a new set-up including LRBA in anticipation of an Auction within a couple of days
- Great process of initial SOA's for existing SMSF's and then ROA thereafter
- Training provided is very practical
I am very happy to recommend this service. "
