Clarification regarding Child Care subsidies:
There are two types of child care subsidies:
CHILD CARE BENEFIT (CCB)
CCB can be claimed through Centrelink and can be paid directly to the Child Care Service, as a reduced fee or annually. The amount of entitlement is determined on the families’ adjusted taxable income (cut off limit $140,000.00), the number of children and hours in care.
You will also need to meet the work, training or study test. You do not need to be a parent to claim CCB, Guardians, foster parents and grandparents responsible for the day-to-day care of children may be eligible.
For more information about the Child Care Benefit go to http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/child-care-benefit
CHILD CARE REBATE (CCR):
CCR is paid in addition to CCB and covers 50% of out-of-pocket expenses, up to a maximum of $7000.00 per child, per financial year. There is no income test but you must lodge a claim for CCB even if assessed for a zero rate.
CCR can be paid directly to the Child Care Service, direct to you, a quarterly or annual payment. The rate of payment will be determined by the cost of care minus any CCB entitlement and then you will receive 50% of the out-of –pocket expense.
For example :
Fees of $70.00 - CCB = $35.00 out-of-pocket expense
You receive 50% of this = $17.50 refunded. Total cost per week $17.50.
