It has been seven months since the new Child Care Subsidy started! It is a good time to check in on your family income estimate. Make sure it is up to date and reflects your and your partner’s income for the whole financial year.
If your estimate is lower than your actual income, you may get a debt, which you will have to pay back. It is also a good time to check and update your activity test if your circumstances have changed.
The easiest way to update your family income estimate is by using your Centrelink online account through myGov, or the Express Plus Centrelink app.
While you are there, do not forget to make sure your and your partner’s activity details are up to date too.
