The first place to start when you offer services is to understand the criteria for your service provision and how it fits in with the NDIS criteria, then what the MAXIMUM rate is that you can invoice for. This does not mean you invoice the maximum rate, but knowing what it is is important.
When setting your prices for service delivery, it is important to have an idea in mind and then discuss with the person or their advocate about the services required and their expectations for price.

Understanding these documents is the solid foundation for your business.
