Standard-cost household service for childcare providers
For the 2018 income year:
- the variable standard-cost component will be $3.55 per hour per child and
- the administration and record keeping fixed standard-cost component will be $347 per annum, for a full 52 weeks of childcare services provided.
These amounts have been adjusted as a consequence of the annual movement of the Consumers Price Index for the 12 months to March 2018, which showed an increase of 1.1%.
For childcare providers who have a standard 31 March balance date, the new amounts apply for the period from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
