Capital Guardians allows business and individuals to securely, conveniently and cost-effectively manage financial payments. Our service builds on the existing financial infrastructure of banks and businesses to create a real-time payment solution. We deliver a service ideally suited to:
- Organisations who oversee the care of individuals (ie disability and aged care operators).
- Organisations who regularly invoice individuals for personal supplies and require simple billing and prompt payment.
- Individuals who want the transparency, governance and security without the workload.
- Organisations that will consider Capital Guardians as a replacement for their accounts receivable requirements and a paperless extension of their billing system.
- Individuals who can think of Capital Guardians as a digital wallet – a single convenient account that manages payments to a restricted number of trusted businesses.
In an operational sense:
Capital Guardians gives disability and aged care operators an automated system. We eliminate administration and the need for an IT system for individuals with CDC homecare funding and individuals in residential care settings.
There is no cost to care organisations either upfront or on-going. Administrative effort for home care organisations is reduced to uploading individual budgets and approving expenses for payment. That way residential operators have minimal admin requirements.
Suppliers invoice electronically with, or without, an accounting system and get paid quickly. The system will integrate with any accounting system that exists today.
Families access statements and reports, online in real-time.
Our business is about eliminating unnecessary administration while providing best practice governance in money matters. As such we:
- Have been operating since 2009, and now manage individual’s monies for thousands of aged care customers;
- Operate across all the states of Australia;
- Hold an Australian Financial Services Licence, number 504332;
- Are the largest operator of this kind in Australia, and as the most efficient the costs of the service are negligible and a fraction of alternatives;
- Save organisations significant time and money from not having to follow up debtors, pay postage, printing and general administration costs. This means we also protect the environment;
- Offer a sophisticated e-commerce system designed by industry veterans from within Australia’s largest accounting system providers and aged care businesses;
- Use cloud-based paperless technology. With one click it automates from any accounting system to scan, record, and save “pdf” invoices. It also provides detailed transaction information and best practice governance audit trail, back to invoice authorities;
- Use leading-edge security, including SSL 128-bit security encryption;
- Protect money through a trust management service that operates directly under the prudential framework and auspicious of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC);
- Only hold small financial balances for monthly transactional items only. In circumstances where balances are considerably larger than that required for transactional purposes by agreement, a separate, at-call, interest-bearing accounts for excess monies will be set up within Westpac on behalf of the fund’s owner; and
- Hold monies with the Westpac Bank, reconciled it daily, and have it audited by Moore Stephens. Any customer can obtain our audit opinion or conduct their own audit at will.
It’s about the quality of life for our clients. Obtaining the products and services of businesses should be easy and without administrative hassles. This is exactly what Capital Guardians does. We makes it easy for the customer and their financial guardians. We save time, money and stress.
