- Correct client NDIA number is entered in the client's details page (for NDIS claims). Read NDIS Bulk Claim to find more information on NDIS claims.
Before generating an invoice for services provided to a client, please ensure that the information above has been applied where applicable.
Once all information has been appropriately entered into the database, follow the below steps to generate an invoice.
- Client Shift-breakdown
