Bentleys works with a cross-section of aged care providers – including church based and private operators – to improve returns in an ever-changing market of continually evolving regulation and increased competition. Our future-focused aged care programs include:

  • Obtaining and maintaining accreditation
  • Complying with prudential requirements
  • Adhering to liquidity management strategy
  • Maintaining the bond register
  • Providing disclosure requirements
  • Providing correct Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) classification
  • Complying with the Retirement Villages Act
  • Providing management letters, including benchmarking against the Bentleys Aged Care Survey, specialist advice that counts

We develop tools, such as rolling three-way financial forecasts, and provide the models to keep aged care providers focused on long-term financial sustainability.

The key benefits of this approach are:

  • The profit impact of economically enforced efficiency measures are understood and addressed (for example, ACFI funding cuts)
  • Funding requirements and sources (bonds, debt) are defined, understood and sourced
  • Governance requirements around treasury management are acquitted
  • Action around long-term financial viability issues is forced
  • For lenders we offer a financial viability assessment service and provide a professional critique that balances risk and other factors against opportunities
Our involvement in aged care funding initiatives includes financial viability assessment analysis of applications received for places and capital grants during the annual Aged Care Approval Rounds (ACAR) process; assessment of eligibility of applications for zero real interest loans; and conditional adjustment payments (CAPs) financial ratio analysis of every aged care provider’s financial reports on behalf of the government (2005 and 2006).
