Accounting and bookkeeping for NDIS businesses

Stellar Support Services in Cessnock NSW are committed to uplifting and empowering people living with a disability.

With the help of Balanced Beans they are now empowered to use Xero, manage their own bookkeeping and control their business, allowing them to focus on providing disability support services to a growing number of participants.

Operating an NDIS business can be immensely rewarding, however business owners in this sector have to ensure they maintain compliance with the myriad NDIS rules and legislation.

Balanced Beans Bookkeepers have extensive experience with NDIS businesses. We can help.

Setting up your NDIS business in Xero

We implemented our deep knowledge of NDIS bookkeeping for Stellar and provided the management team with the financial system set up, support and ongoing accounting services they needed to become robust NDIS operators.  

This included:

  • Setting up Xero and Hubdoc and providing training and support until the client was able to prepare their own bookkeeping
  • Advising the client to establish multiple bank accounts to manage their cash flow and setting these up in Xero
  • Setting up payroll, ensuring compliance with the SCHADS award, as well as undertaking its specialised integration with Xero. (Most workers in the NDIS industry operate under the SCHADS award: Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award; a particularly complex award).
  • Integrating Xero with Shiftcare Care Management Software and ensuring it was working to its full potential.

How Balanced Beans helped this NDIS business

Melanie Harrison, Director of Stellar Support Services on the difference Balanced Beans Bookkeepers has made to their NDIS business:

“Originally we were going to use MYOB but after a few discussions with Karen and the team we decided to switch to Xero.

They taught us how to use the program and no questions we had were too big or small for them, they took as many of our phone calls as were required to help us.
The team at Balanced Beans have extensive knowledge in the NDIS sector, including the SCHADS award which our employees are paid under, and all line items that we use for invoicing our participants.

Balanced Beans has helped us to build our company from the ground up with their knowledge, patience and understanding”. 

Specialised NDIS Accountants & Bookkeepers

Balanced Beans don’t simply offer NDIS organisations bookkeeping set-up services. We offer much more. As NDIS specialists we are adept at automating compliance, bookkeeping, accounting and administrative processes for service providers. This allows NDIS organisations to spend more time with clients and focus on their future growth.

For the team at Stellar, we now undertake Financial Statements and Tax Returns for the company, Business Activity Statements, Payroll and Bookkeeping. This speaks to our commitment to the client, the outcomes we have achieved for them and the close working relationship and rapport that we have established.

If you’re an NDIS operator, it’s crucial that you have an NDIS bookkeeper who understands the  regulations and awards around the NDIS scheme, and the experience to set your NDIS business up for success. Balanced Beans are based in the Hunter Valley but can work with clients throughout Australia. Get in touch.
