We help clients enjoy the freedom to control their super savings and plans for retirement.

YSA's values reflect what the owners value most.

Max is loyal, trustworthy, intelligent, hard-working, keen to help and loves the freedom of Australia’s great outdoors.

YSA is an independent, family owned business. Melissa and Andrew have enjoyed extensive travel throughout Australia with their three children. They love the freedom of getting away and long walks with their border collie Max. 

It’s no co-incidence “YSA’s mission is to provide:

  • all clients with the freedom from truly independent unbiased advice that is always in their best interests,
  • SMSF Trustees with the freedom to choose any cash account, any broker, any term deposits, any other investment, and
  • the freedom to access industry leading cloud SMSF Administration software from any device, any time, any where.”
Quality independent service, available whether you’re home, travelling, or at the beach walking your dog.

YSA's Background.

You’ll benefit from direct access to expertise from over 25 years accounting experience in the field. Initial accounting roles included major financial institutions (IOOF, National Mutual and MLC / Lend Lease) and then in SMSF-focussed roles within small public practices.  Development of SMSF financials for generalist accountants commenced in 2008 and an independent ATO tax agent registration has been held since 2009.

Melissa and Andrew established YSA in 2009 to offer a service that blends strengths of the big and small end of the industry.

Most accountants provide traditional ‘generalist’ accounting services.  Relatively few focus on Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs). Even fewer use industry leading cloud technology and have an independent AFS licence to provide you with the freedom and flexibility offered by Your Super Accountant.
