What makes a great outsourced NDIS bookkeeper?
An NDIS 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 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 is a NDIS bookkeeper?
NDIS bookkeepers require all the same skills as standard bookkeepers. 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. In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in bookkeeping or accounting is desirable given the financial nature of the role.
