Award-Winning SMSF Firm

"Mark Forte has provided invaluable tax advice in particular to our SMSF about the recent changes to superannuation law. Mark worked with our lawyer who prepared the necessary changes to the SMSF Trust Deed. Wilson Pateras looks after and prepares the tax returns not only for the SMSF but also for me and my whole family. The service is very prompt and the advice very practical."

Things to Consider

The decision to set up an SMSF is one that requires careful consideration: as you make investment decisions for your fund, you are held responsible for complying with superannuation and taxation laws. Wilson Pateras can support you to ensure investment decisions you make support your overall investment strategy whilst avoiding unnecessary risk.

SMSF Rules and Regulations

Our comprehensive financial team of superannuation accountants in Melbourne, alongside our advisors, will have administrators on hand to help you manage the ATO reporting requirements. This approach keeps you on the right side of rules and regulations. As owners (technically ‘Trustees’) of the fund, you always have the final say on your investments.

It is your choice as to whether you wish to have a high level of involvement in the operation of your fund and if you have the time to keep track of the daily transactions and compliance obligations, or alternatively, have us handle it for you.

Keith Naismith




I am a Manager at Wilson Pateras specialising in self-managed super. I have significant experience in managing funds and working closely with clients to properly understand and assist on a full range of SMSF matters. I have a strong information technology background with a Bachelor of Business focusing on Accounting & Finance at La Trobe University. 

I began working in the SMSF accounting sector back in 2008 at Super Concepts learning from some of the smartest SMSF specialist in the business. Ultimately I lead several teams responsible for lodging up to a thousand funds with over a billion dollars in assets.

Over the years, my expertise expanded in all areas of accounting including pensions, corporate actions, daily administration, fund migrations, new business, business optimisation & training.

In July 2018, I moved to a local business service accounting firm to focus on centralising the SMSF area. I was responsible for a book of several hundred clients helping to manage client and adviser relationships, meeting lodgement requirements, providing technical expertise with issues ranging from QROPS to LRBA’s and keeping up to date with legislative change.

My extensive background in team leadership and working within the financial services industry has given me a great understanding on the complexities of SMSF fund management.
