A recent client on my Financial Fitness program shared her struggles with running a small business. “Where did the money go?” is an all-too-common question I receive!

You see, many business owners are so focused on delivery, they neglect to properly keep track of their expenses.

As a NDIS provider, managing finances is crucial to ensuring the sustainability and growth of your services. Yet, we still ask ourselves, “Where did my money go?”

Here are some essential tips for NDIS Providers:

1. Detailed Record-Keeping: Maintain accurate and detailed records of all transactions. This includes invoices, receipts, and payroll records.      Regular audits can help identify discrepancies early.
2. Budget Wisely: Develop a comprehensive budget that outlines expected income and expenses. Regularly review and adjust this budget to
reflect changes in funding or operational costs.
3. Monitor Cash Flow: Keep a close eye on your cash flow. Ensure that your income covers your expenses and allows for savings. Cash flow
projections can help anticipate and mitigate potential shortfalls.
4. Use Accounting Software: Invest in reliable accounting software tailored for NDIS providers. These tools can streamline bookkeeping,
manage your people, generate reports, and provide real-time financial insights.
5. Regular Financial Reviews: Conduct regular financial reviews and involve your team in the process. This promotes transparency,
identifies opportunities and collective accountability.

By implementing these strategies, you can gain better control over your money, ensuring that it is used effectively to provide high-quality support and services to your participants.  You'll no longer be thinking “Where did my money go?”, because you'll know exactly where it is going!
