    Hi All,

    I’m in Melbourne Eastern Suburbs and looking at starting my own disability support agency. Would anyone know the start up cost with Indemnity and Liability insurance and work cover? I have a registered business name but do I need a company?

    Any Assistance would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Matt

    Best bet would be to talk to state and fed govt to see what they advise.

    I am sure they will have a list of needs they require as well, depending on the sorts of services you want to offfer.

    Let me know when the site is up & running. I would be more than happy to advertise your site for 3 months on a PageRank 4 Disability Information Site.

    Cheers

    Seeing how the NDIS is working now it’s probably a great time to set up a much fairer agency. It could quickly put clients and workers together and take less slice of the funding to maximise the clients funds. Currently about 50% of the cost goes to the agency with the other half going to the worker. An online one like Better Caring or Hire Up is a good starting model.

    You could look through the websites of companies that are offering Franchises – this would give you a pretty good idea but most of the cost will be taken up with staff costs so your staffing model is very important.

    [USER=37857]@alliedib[/USER] provides great advice around insurance on these forums.

    Good luck.
