We’ll start balancing family payments for 2019-20 from July

5 June 2020

Every year, we balance Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to make sure we pay you the right amount.

To balance your payments, we compare how much FTB and CCS you got with how much you’re entitled to. This includes any supplements you can get and amounts we withheld during the year. We consider changes to your circumstances during the financial year as well, for example if your child’s care arrangements change

You don’t need to do anything yet

We can’t start balancing payments for 2019-20 until the financial year ends, so there’s nothing you need to do now.

From July most families will need to confirm their income. Not everyone will have to do the same thing. What you’ll need to do will depend on your circumstances.

We’ll start balancing FTB from July, and CCS from August.

You’ll be able to manage your balancing with us online. You won’t need to call or visit us.
