The principal of POWER TO CARE is a sole trader in a private practice operating as a business.
Income is received from fees paid by clients.
The business does not receive any funding, financial grants or financial assistance.

Appointments under the PPPR Act including Enduring Powers of Attorney are appointments
that are personal to the person appointed. While tasks can be delegated, responsibility cannot and
the person appointed is ultimately responsible for all aspects of the appointment.


A first consultation fee of $55 (plus GST) is charged, payable at the time of consultation.
Fees are calculated on a time used basis in most cases depending on who carries out
the tasks and what the tasks are. For some situations a set weekly fee is charged.
Our fees range from $50.00 to $175.00 (plus GST) per hour; no income handling fee is charged, and no commission on funds invested.
We are happy to discuss any aspect of fees in advance.

Fees correct as at 1 October 2023; Power To Care reserves the right to change, waive, or discount any of these charges at its discretion without notice
