CPI Adjustment for Determination DET 09/02: Standard-cost household service for childcare providers

CPI Adjustment 16/01 (2016) for determination DET 09/02: Standard-cost household service for childcare providers.

In accordance with the provisions of Determination DET 09/02, as published in Tax Information Bulletin Volume 21, Number 4 (June 2009), Inland Revenue advises that, for the 2016 income year:

  1. The variable standard-cost component will be $3.43 per hour per child; and
  2. The administration and record keeping fixed standard-cost component will be $336 per annum, for a full 52 weeks of childcare services provided.

The above amounts have been adjusted as a consequence of the annual movement of the Consumers Price Index for the twelve months to March 2016, which showed a small increase of 0.4%. For childcare providers who have a standard 31 March balance date, the new amounts apply for the period from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016.
