I'm doing the budget for when I'm on maternity leave. Potentially I won't earn an income in the 2016/17 financial if I don't return to work and according to the centerlink calculators we will be entitled to some ftb.
If I return to work for part of the year I will only earn a fraction of my income for the year, but high enough to loose most benefits.
( if I return it will be mid January 2017)
So my question is, if i start the year and estimate no income, but then we realise I need to return to work do we need to pay back the $$ that have already been given?
