CPA Australia’s definition of "public accounting services" includes SMSF advice. 

Therefore, if you are a principal in practice or providing SMSF advice in your own right, under our By-Laws you must hold a Public Practice Certificate. Applying for this certificate requires completion of CPA Australia’s Practice Management distance learning program and other requirements as stated in our By-Laws.

Further, public practice certificate holders are subject to CPA Australia’s Quality Review Program.
