Depending on your role, this benefit allows you to potentially save on child care fees, as long as the child care facility is a registered provider. This could be a privately owned child care facility or one that is managed by your local council. Payments can be made directly to the child care provider or as a reimbursement back to you. You can set up a once off payment or regular payments depending on how you use these services.
Note: Salary packaging child care fees may affect your entitlement to government benefits as salary packaging can affect the gross value of your salary. We recommend you seek independent financial advice to determine if salary packaging is right for you.
