  1. The weekly standard-cost for one to two boarders will increase from $213 each to $220 each.
  2. The weekly standard-cost for third and subsequent number of boarders will increase from $173 each to $179 each.

The above amounts have been adjusted in accordance with the annual movement of the All Groups Consumers Price Index for the twelve months to March 2008, which showed an increase of 3.4%. For boarding service providers who have a standard 31 March balance date, the new amounts apply for the period from 1 April 2007 to 31 March 2008.
