    Default Question about childcare tax rebates.

    Ok, guys I have a question......I am wanting to reduce my working hours next year, to just working two days per week. In order to do so I need to work out how to reduce some of our spending. This will mean that DS will only be going to daycare one day per week. We are not entitled to CCB or any FTB, but do get the quarterly childcare tax rebate. I think I heard somewhere though, that nowdays it is possible to get the tax rebate as reduced weekly fees rather than a quarterly rebate, is this correct? At the moment, as DS is in daycare several days a week, the quarterly tax rebate is a nice little bonus, but if he is only going one day a week from next year, the quarterly rebate would be negligible and it would make more sense to just claim the reduced weekly fees....So can I claim the tax rebate this way?

    You can but you can only change the method in which you recieve the rebate for the next financial year, not the current one.

    Yes but you need to decide at the start of the FY so I think too late for this one?
