As an accountant I don't agree with this proposal. Memories come flooding back of clients opening SMSF investing in the property of their business, without understanding the implications, let alone their own responsibilities.
We will just end up back where we started and the whole pain of the Royal Commission will be for nothing. Specialist knowledge is specialist for a reason, no one would want their GP doing brain or heart surgery on them, same in the financial services industry.
