Consulting Case Studies

Case Study 1:

Finance System

An English language college offering tuition services to international students, turnover approx. $4M engaged NFPAS to replace accounting software and find efficiencies in finance system.

The organisation wanted to replace the accounting software as the then current software, while powerful, was overly complex and not effective for their needs. This was compounded by a lack of (but very expensive) ‘on the ground’ service by the vendor and the sudden exit of the Finance Administrator.

    • Worked with Management and Board to develop scope
    • Confirmed system requirements and end-user needs
    • Reviewed existing processes and software systems, meeting with the vendor, and found that they were needlessly complicated
    • Assessed alternative accounting software solutions
    • Recommended new accounting software

The client accepted the recommendation and approved NFPAS to implement. We continue to provide ongoing accounting services to the client.

Case Study 2:

Financial Plan – Long-term Financial Position Forecast

South Australian meal service provider engaged NFPAS to provide a three-year Financial Plan to ensure it maintained in a strong financial position post a planned large building project.

The organisation had consolidated a large amount of Investment funds earmarked for a large-scale capital build.  Would they still be as financially secure post the large building project, without investment income returns and still have adequate cash to fund future capital works.

  • Gathered information on capital spend and current position.
  • Set assumptions of expected future movements.
  • Forecasted cash flow movement over the project and beyond.
  • Prepared a vision of their longer-term Financial position.

A long-term Financial Position and cash flow forecast provided the assurance required by the Board to continue with their large-scale building project as planned.

These were examined in detail and filtered for importance and impact, and then consolidated into an operational review report which was presented to and discussed with the senior management team. It highlighted various ideas from the ‘blue sky thinking’ sessions, contained some key improvement suggestions to the current operating model and also listed some alternate ways that the organisation could have a major impact in the community, in the areas of need it serves. The report and ideas were well-received and the organisation was left with a list of possible options to implement and concepts to further discuss and explore.

Case Study 3:

Payroll Remediation Project

South Australian disability provider engaged NFPAS to prepare back payment calculations for their present and past employees.

An underpayment issue was identified that required remediation.

  • Gathered an understanding of the award interpretation rules that required remediation.
  • Reviewed prior payroll payments for underpayments.
  • Prepared back payment calculations for each individual employee.

The organisation was able to move forward with correct payment to employees and remediate any prior underpayments.
