The new “Child Care Package” is coming in July 2018
The year 2017 is fast coming to a close and it is now that we start looking forward to the New Year and what is in store for 2018!
An important consideration for you will be the Government’s New Child Care Package which commences on 2 July 2018.
Under the new package, the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate will be replaced by a new Child Care Subsidy.
The amount of subsidy that families will receive will be based on three things:
1. their combined family income
2. the level of ‘approved’ activity they undertake
3. the type of child care service they use.
The easiest way to work out how much subsidy you may be eligible for is through the Family Child Care Subsidy Estimator which is available here …
It’s easy to use and only takes a few minutes to fill out.
As we receive more information and come to understand the new processes we will of course share this so that you too can understand!
