Creating an ACCS Determination

Modified on Wed, 6 Mar at 1:06 AM

The Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS) was introduced to provide further fee assistance for those children who need extra support.  For a more detailed understanding, visit the Department of Education, Skills and Employment resources. 

Note: A child needs to have a CWA or ACCS/PEA enrolment before a Determination request can be submitted.


Creating a Determination

From the selected family Account profile, select the CCS tab. 
Select the child and click + Add Child at Risk.  Select Create Determination. 
Mandatory information is indicated with an asterix and is required to be completed in order to submit.

Child details

The start date of the Determination must be a Monday date.  Specify which child the Determination is for, as well as the amount of weeks at risk and what the risk reasons are.  Use the Indicative Risk to Date calendar to specify the date to which the child is at risk.

State/Territory Body Details

The Determination cannot be submitted unless the State/Territory 204K notice has been provided.  If the Provider has already submitted the notice on a Certificate within 6 weeks of the application submission date then they will not need to do so again at this point.

If the Provider has not submitted the notice, specify whether the Provider was notified or they are notifying a State or Territory body.  Add the notice date and provide any organisation and contact details you have.  If the Provider was notified by a State/Territory body, it is mandatory to attach the notice they sent to you.

Supporting Documents

Evidence must be provided to support the application for Determination.
Supported file types: pdf, png, tiff, jpg

Please note: Determinations require both a State and Territory Notice (204K) evidence type and Child Well Being Evidence (ACC002) evidence type to be uploaded

Declaration Agreement

The final step is to declare that the information you have provided on the Determination application is true and correct. Select Submit.

Access Determination Information

You can access Determination information from two places within Kangarootime:

  • On the individual Family profile, go to the CCS tab
  • Go to the Subsidies on the menu, click on CCS Subsidies and then select the ACCS tab
