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
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.
