CCS Financial Year Information

Modified on Wed, 6 Mar at 1:12 AM

When CCS came into effect the government changed when the per child limit for absent days and ccs payment cap reset.  This will always reset on the 1st of July each financial year. 

 

To break this down we have provided some example below of how this may look for families:

 

Absent Counts

 

Example 1:  Child reaches 42 absent days on 15th June 2021.  The child is then again absent on the week 28th June to 2nd of July.  The absent days on the Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th, Wednesday 30th of June would all not have CCS applied.  However the absent days on Thursday the 1st and Friday the 2nd of July would have CCS apply as the count has been reset. 

 

Example 2: Child is absent on Wednesday 30th 2021 of June and Thursday 1st of July 2021.  The absent on the 30th of June is the child's 42nd absent day for the financial year.  CCS will still apply to both absent days as the rest has occurred on the 1st of July, and that will be considered the 1st absent for the new financial year. 

 

 

CCS Payment Cap

 

Example 1: Family reaches their annual cap on Monday 28th of June and attends 5 days per week.  Tuesday 29th and Wednesday the 30th of June will not pay CCS, but the Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd of July will have CCS paid as the CCS Payment Cap was rest on Thursday the 1st of July. 

 

Example 2: Family reaches their annual cap on Wednesday 30th of June and the attend 5 days per week.  CCS will apply to Thursday the 1st and Friday the 2nd of July as the CCS Payment Cap reset on Thursday 1st of July. 

 

Please note from the beginning of the 2022 financial year annual cap will be removed.
