Frequently asked questions

Delivering a critical business function inhouse, like payroll, can be challenging. There is no room for error. Employees must be paid correctly and on time, and the company must remain compliant. The many tasks required to ensure accuracy can create a very time-consuming process and create unnecessary strain on in-house teams. Our team of skilled professionals can help lower compliance risks, with a faster turn-around time.

We need to know the size of your practice and can then provide an estimate of how many hours per fortnight billing period would be required to best assist you. This estimate is based upon the expected volume of bank feed data, invoice/bill payment, and doctor disbursements required, and can vary once a thorough view of your accounting software and current payroll services is undertaken.

We are experienced with many medical practice software systems, including Genie, Best Practice, Medical Director, Xestro, Clinic to Cloud, Gentu and many more. Our bookkeeping team operate in Xero and MYOB, with specialised training in both payroll systems. We routinely use Surgical Partners for auto-reconciliation and doctor payments. For larger practices our preferred payroll platform is Tanda, which supports time clock, rostering and payroll budgeting functionality.
