Q. Do I have to change my administrative processes in order to manage the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Tax Rebate (CCTR) changes?
A. The Child Care Benefit (CCB) rate increase can be dealt with through your normal processes for dealing with Consumer Price Index (CPI) increases to CCB.
However, rather than the standard CPI increase of just over 3%, the increase from 1 July 2007 will be an additional 10% making a total of more than 13%. Your ready reckoner will assist you with this in the usual business practices.
While there are no administrative changes for services with regard to the Child Care Tax Rebate (CCTR) as families will take the action to receive this, please ensure that you continue to submit your statements in accordance with the normal statement period cycle.
