Tailored Accounts reviews “NDIS Readiness Report 2016” by BDO Australia

  • Read: 834 times

Are Not-For-Profit Organisations ready for NDIS new model?

Over the past three years, and particularly since the NDIS Rollout arrived at all states in Australia, there is a projection of a fundamental change to support the NDIS new model. The new model allows NDIS participants to gain control over the funding without going through disability service providers.

Not-For-Profits Organisations have experienced challenges in adapting with the new NDIS model. They will have to change their fund reception structure from government block grants to individually funded clients. The major concerns of Not-For-Profit organisations are reflected in “NDIS Readiness Report 2016” by BDO Australia.


Key findings of the research consider the uncertainties of Not-For-Profit organisations in adapting with the NDIS change. Concerns regarding standard of service delivery and re-position of “Not-For-Profit” status are mentioned as an evidence of change resistance amongst Not-For-Profit organisations. Technology, financial, and human resource have now become crucial to enhance the “readiness” of these organisations.

In the complex and highly individualised system of NDIS, prominent challenges are identified as long term organisational survival and financial sustainability. It is clear to realise the Not-For-Profit organisations have yet had their strategy to adapt their service scheme and finance reform to serve Australians with disabilities under the new NDIS model.


The “love story" between accountants and bookkeepers

  • Read: 861 times

Most people assume that bookkeepers and accountants get along very well―both share common goals and contribute to the long-term financial success of businesses and clients. The reality, however, is they tend not to share a lot of information with one another. Few weeks ago, a new customer asked us if we do tax preparation and lodging as he didn’t want to deal with too many parties (i.e. bookkeeper and accountant). I explained to him that bookkeepers and accountants work together as a team because they each have different skill sets and make up different stages of the financial cycle.

Before engaging us as their bookkeepers, some of my customers have previously requested for their accountants to perform both bookkeeping and accounting for them. While many hope that their accountants can be “one-stop shops” for their financial needs, many realise that their accountants don’t offer bookkeeping services. So, should bookkeepers and accountants compete with one another, or should they cooperate with one another? Based on my past experiences dealing with business owners, clients, and accounting firms, I think that bookkeepers and accountants should dance around with each other to realise the best possible outcomes for their clients.

But why are such harmonious and effective relationship shard to achieve most of the time? In my opinion, the problem lies with both accountants and bookkeepers.
