    Default Has anybody's family member or friend set up as a registered carer?

    (For CCB purposes.)
    My mum has offered to look after my baby 1 or 2 of the 4 days I'll be working with the other 2 days being at daycare. I don't want her to do it for free so am going to pay her $25 a day.

    According to centrelink I can claim ccb for both daycare and registered care and all she requires is an abn which she has already. I'm wondering about payment rates, is there a minimum you must pay them? How does it all work? You pay, she issues receipt, you claim? As usual, the centrelink ws explains nothing!

    I'm not sure about your situation or this question, but since the CCB has a cap, if you will spend over the cap on the normal child care, it may be easier to just acclaim for that and not claim for your mums part. Then any payments you give her don't need to be taxed

    Any idea where it's less paperwork and less tax for your mum to pay is a winner I think!

    Cash payments between family mean both those are ticked

    My ds goes to a registered care. I pay, they give me a reciept and I claim from centrelink directly. But the amount you get back from registered care is tiny...something like 70 cents/hour. So it might not be worth it for you.

    Yes I read that the maximum is about $35 for 50hrs of care? I wonder how much you have to pay to get that back. Any idea how the payment rates work? How did you set it up?

    Very true. My mum wants to do it for free as I won't be earning alot going back p/t- but I would be more comfortable just paying something! Trying to find a solution for cheap child care which doesn't exist!!!

    Why not pay your mum in a different way? Say buy her vouchers for groceries, or a massage or movie tickets or buy a holiday/weekend away? Even if you "pay" her the amount you pay after CBB you will feel better. Just a show of appreciation rather than paid work

    When my mum helped us out with weekly child caring we 'paid' her in coles myer giftcards.

    Each week when i did my grocery shopping i brought a $50 gift card along with nappies & wipes that id leave at my parents house.

    When i picked up my kids id leave the giftcard on her kitchen bench.

    Personally i just wanted to be giving her something so i didnt feel like i was taking her for granted.
    Plus she fed my kids while she had them.

    It's actually an occasional care (two carers to up to 10 kids a session). It costs about $10/hr and sessions are about 3.5hrs long...so it's pretty expensive compared to what yoy get back! I'm not sure what the minimum is that you need to pay.
