Accounting giant Deloitte has confirmed it has wholly acquired one well-known SMSF auditing firm.
Speaking to SMSF Adviser, chief executive of Engage Super Audits Jo Heighway confirmed the auditing firm had been acquired by Deloitte.
The transaction, confirmed officially today, has seen the entire Engage team either transferred or invited to transfer to Deloitte.
Consequently, the Engage Super Audits brand no longer exists.
Ms Heighway, who began her career at Deloitte, is now partner, SMSF assurance and advisory.
“I am really excited to be returning home to Deloitte. I believe that together, we have the audit and technological capabilities to enable our team to be the leading SMSF audit practice in the country,” Ms Heighway said.
Frances Borg, financial services audit leader at Deloitte, welcomed the arrival of Ms Heighway and her team.
“The arrival of Engage’s Jo Heighway and her team of audit professionals today will enhance the depth, capability and credibility of our SMSF practice,” said financial services audit leader Frances Borg.
