The new Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Dear GOOSH families,

When the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) commences in July 2018, it will:

– Replace the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single,
means-tested subsidy
– Be paid directly to the service providers to be passed onto families
– Be simpler than the current multi-payment system
– Be better targeted and provide more assistance to low and middle-income families

This is a friendly reminder to complete your registration for the new CCS via the “My Gov” app. If you do not register for the new system, no rebate will be applied against your account and full fees will be incurred by you. Registrations which take place after 1 August, will not be eligible to claim back rebates between 1 July 2018 and 31 July 2018.

If you require assistance with this process, please email or call us so we can arrange an appointment time with you.

Estimator’ is available the following link:
