Childcare subsidy delayed – DELAYED WIN
The implementation of the proposed child care subsidies (contingent on the passage of family tax benefit reforms) will be delayed by one year to 1 July 2018.
It is proposed that the following three payments:
â€¢ Child care benefit (CCB)
â€¢ Child care rebate (CCR), and
â€¢ Jobs, education and training child care fee assistance (for parents who qualify for the maximum rate of CCB)
will be combined into a single means-tested child care subsidy (CCS), paid directly to providers, from 1 July 2018.
The nanny pilot program (commenced on 1 January 2016), which subsidises care provided by a nanny in a childâ€™s home, will be extended for six months to 30 June 2018. The hourly fee cap will be increased from $7 to $10 from 1 June 2016.
