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.

What key skills and qualifications make a great NDIS bookkeeper?

NDIS bookkeepers require all the same skills as a standard bookkeeper. Their main priority and key skill is being able to process a significant amount of invoices for plan participants from relevant suppliers related to their plan. This involves prioritisation, a high level of accuracy and time management skills in order to get through the volume of invoices required for processing - with no errors. NDIS Bookkeepers speak to non-financial service participants and handle supplier enquiries all while still completing the financial functions of a general bookkeeper. Interpersonal communication skills are essential here to help with the go between of a financial mindset to an administrative persona in these cases to best service their core responsibilities.

Outsourcing services recruit NDIS bookkeepers the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience do you have working as a bookkeeper or in similar, financial roles? 
  • What are your time management skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication with the ability to build rapport among a range of stakeholders?
  • What organisation techniques do you use to ensure information is updated and maintained?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What client management systems or CRM systems are you familiar with?
  • What accounting systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in bookkeeping or accounting is desirable given the financial nature of the role. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's NDIS compliance requirements. By hiring these bookkeepers who understand the principle of confidentiality and privacy when handling sensitive information, they can efficiently support and coordinate with your onshore teams to increase revenue. 

  • Whether you are looking to train an NDIS bookkeeper from the ground up and teach them your business's way of doing things, or 
  • Whether you are seeking expertise and a team of NDIS bookkeepers with certifications and higher education.

Benefits of outsourcing NDIS bookkeeping roles
