Gobbill NDIS featured in Accounting Technician magazine

The disability sector has been shaken up since the introduction and continual roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Australia’s first national scheme to support people with permanent and significant disability. The purpose of the NDIS is to allocate funding to participants so that they have more control and choice over where they direct their spending.

There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Currently, there are 277,000 NDIS participants and the number is expected to double next year as the scheme rollout continues. The 2019-20 Federal Budget estimated that $23 billion in annual payments will be processed through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

This has created a myriad of challenges and opportunities – one of which is to assist NDIS participants to manage their claiming and payment of their services related to NDIS funded support activities. Find out more how Gobbill supports self-managed participants and plan managers in managing budgets, invoices and payments.

Million-dollar NDIS payments fraud affecting 70 people on disability support plans | The Australian

May 23rd, 2019 Posted by Alerts, Case Studies 0 thoughts on “Million-dollar NDIS payments fraud affecting 70 people on disability support plans | The Australian”

Five people have been arrested and luxury cars seized in western Sydney over an organised criminal syndicate suspected of defrauding the National Disability Insurance Scheme of millions of dollars.

It will be alleged the syndicate controlled three NDIS providers that fraudulently claimed $1.1 million in NDIS payments from more than 70 people on disability plans or those managing their affairs.

Investigations are ongoing, with more than 100 other potential victims identified in connection to the three entities allegedly controlled by the syndicate.

Gobbill is fighting back and is currently piloting a solution to make payments easier and safer for NDIS self-managed participants and plan managers. See https://gobbill.com/ndis
