    Default No Childcare rebate

    I just realised due to returning to work (3 days) and Dh's income (self employed), we now pay $479 per fortnight, instead of $355 pf for 2 days per week.
    Geez it's a lot! It's more than his future high school fees!
    Is there a chance I'll still get a rebate quarterly? I know I should call centerlink, but the wait time is always too long.

    That's how I thought it worked to... but the rebate is only to a maximum of $7,500 per year.
    Have you sussed out any of the calculators online?

    Yes, you will still get the child care rebate (which is not income means tested)- if you nominated to get a lump sum quarterly, then that will occur, or you can elect to receive it more regularly.
