Our Solutions

We offer a range of solutions to help schools improve their financial health and efficiency.

Fee management for schools

Full solution that helps schools maximise cashflow while providing flexible payment arrangements to parents.

Payment plans for parents

Sustainable and responsible plans to help families better manage their school fee payments.

Receive upfront payments

Edstart Pay Chart

Unlike a traditional payment plan or direct debit arrangement, Edstart pays school fee invoices in full when they are due (e.g. every term or semester) to help schools maximise cash flow and reduce the risk of bad debt.

Schools are able to maintain stability in working capital instead of relying on unpredictable and fluctuating cash receivables.

Working with Edstart

Easy to set-up

There are no process or system changes required. Continue issuing invoices or statements and Edstart will pay the school using your preferred payment method.

Dedicated support

Our team can provide a range of support to your school and families. We also provide transparent reporting so that schools can continue to own and improve the parent relationship.

Improved outcomes

Edstart works collaboratively with schools and families when there is a change in circumstances to achieve the best possible outcome for both parties.
