Sigh, trying to figure this out once again. I had a really good grasp of how these are paid, noted it all down and then lost the lot ddoh.gif So before I resort to being on hold or waiting in line for hours, only to get the wrong information, maybe some CCR/CCB gurus can help me get my head around it original.gif

Ok, so for financial year 2011-12 I have received 3 quarterly CCR payments and am awaiting the final quarters payment (only just lodged tax return).

I have elected to receive CCB @ 0% and claim as a lump sum at the end of the year and I'm trying to work out how much this might be. I have used the estimator, and I can figure out apprx how much we are owed. However, I remember the 2010-11 fin year I was entitled to CCB, and by receiving the CCB my out of pocket expenses were considered lower and therefore I received less CCR?

So is CCB calculated before CCR? Or the other way around? Or am I completely off?

Also, do I need to submit a form or claim for lump sum payment of CCB?

I've managed to thoroughly confuse myself, a little clarity please?! biggrin.gif

full fees - CCB = eligible CCR component
50% of this amount ( up to $7500) = CCR
What is left is what you owe child care centre.

I dont know if it works the same in childcare centres but if you are really interested the calculations for CCB in FDC is 3.9 x 1.3333 / 100 x CCB percentage ( then / 100 x 85 for school aged children) will get you your CCB figure per hour.

Hope that helps...

That makes perfect sense, thankyou both very much original.gif

I have lodged a claim online for CCB, just to be on the safe side. A brief search of this forum revealed people are waiting for months for these claims to be paid!

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
