    Sorry to hash this up again, but if the cap of $7500 is reached after 35 weeks do you then need to pay the full 100% of cc fees?
    Yes.

    Well yes but 174 days is almost 35 weeks when you only include Monday - Friday

    Default Childcare rebate

    I think the cap was increased to $10000 in the latest budget.
    to get the CCR you need to go on the centrelink website and apply for the ccb (even if you're not eligible for it). You will need a CRN to supply to the childcare centre, once they have this then they can let centrelink know that your child is enrolled and you are eligible to receive CCR.
    For me the rebate gets paid directly to the childcare centre so they only take 50% of the fees out of my account. I believe you can also pay the full amount and receive the rebate quarterly direct from the government if you wish but this seems like more work for you

    Sorry, just read that the $10000 doesn't come in until July 2017.

    If you get the CCR paid directly to your childcare provider, they pay 50% - 15%, so in effect 35%. At the end of the financial year when you've submitted your tax, they then calculate if you have received the right amount and use the 15% they held to either pay off anything owing to you or paying any debt owed to them. Hope that makes sense!

    Hello. Resurrecting this thread to ask a related question. Does anyone know the study criteria to apply for the CCR?

    A quick look on the website also says 'looking for work' and 'volunteering' count? Is that right??

    Yeah if your doing some kind of activity like studying or looking for work for less than 15 hours a week then you'll get rebate . ..more than 15 then its 50 hours of ccn and ccr. Volunteering has to be something that improves chances of getting work.

    Sorry to gate crash this thread but do you have to definitely be working or studying to be eligible for the CCR or CCB?

    I'm a single mum and my DS is 11 weeks. I was hoping by 5-6 months to put him in care for 2 days a week for the following reasons!

    1) to socialise him with other people and children
    2) so I can assist in the build of my new home
    3) to do house work and have some "me time"
    4) to try and find a new career as mine wouldn't be possible with a child
    4) to ease him into things for when I do go back to work, if I get work or can alter my previous duties to suit my employer and baby
