The ATO have commenced sending SMSs to SMSF trustees when changes are made to SMSF details – to protect against unauthorised changes.

Messages will be sent when any of the following details are changed:

  • financial institution account details
  • electronic service address
  • authorised contact
  • members

We have found that us going into your ATO portal file has triggered a few SMS messages to trustees.  If you do receive a text and you don’t think any changes should have been updated with the ATO, please contact us and we can investigate it for you.
