Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

NDIS Plan Management

Hi,

 

I am a NDIS Plan Manager. I claim funds from NDIS on behalf of client and pay client's invoices. Should the funds received during this operation be treated as my income and included in my BAS or not? What is the best practice in the industry for this?

 

Regards

Aashish

Hi @Aashish92

 

As an NDIS Plan Manager you receive separate funding from the NDIS to manage client's NDIS plans.  This is your income that you will report in your BAS returns and income tax return.

 

The NDIS plan funds for your client's service provider charges are definitely not your income. They are the NDIS funding for the client. They should not be included in your income for BAS and income tax returns.

 

I'd recommend that you review the details about NDIS Plan Management on the NDIS web site here.
