What is a NDIS bookkeeper?
A NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) bookkeeper is responsible for liaising with providers and the NDIS to perform general bookkeeping duties for organisations. They handle all financial tasks such as accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll and ensure invoices are claimed and paid for in a timely manner. These NDIS bookkeepers provide support to NDIS participants and carers in organisations that have NDIS plan management services.
NDIS bookkeeping duties and tasks can include:
- Plan management support to service participants such as enquiries from providers regarding payments and invoices
- Account reconciliation including general ledger and end of month accounts
- Accounts payable, receivable and payroll functions including bank reconciliations, and cash flow management
- Preparation of financial statements
- Accounts payable with coding accuracy
- Interpreting the NDIS price list and determining categories for invoices
- Emailing providers for additional information if required to process invoices
- General data processing.
These bookkeeping tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local NDIS teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced NDIS bookkeepers. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.
