Click on the link to the relevant sections of the online providers’ child care handbook for ACCS.
A service provider can only grant an initial 6 weeks ACCS certificate for children at risk - all others grandparents, training for work (old JET is now ACCS), financial hardship, etc - the Parent needs to go to Centrelink themselves to make a claim (or via MYGOV) and if the claim is granted (they are eligible) then the ACCS % flows down to the Enrolment.
Click on the link for help to create the child at risk’s ACCS 6 weeks certificate and 13 week determinations, from within SmartCentral Additional Child Care Subsidy.
Within SmartCentral an enrolment first needs to be active. When creating an enrolment in SmartCentral, make sure the start date is the Monday prior to the child’s first session you want to claim ACCS for, or if the child’s first day attending is in the future use today’s date as the start date of the enrolment. Make sure the booking start date is the actual child’s first day of attendance. You can set an enrolment start date to today as long as the child is starting within 8 weeks else CCS will exit the enrolment before the child starts.
Once the Enrolment is PENDEL/PENDIN/Active, go to the enrolment’s ACCS TAB and create the 6 week ACCS certificate
MAke sure the paperwork to support CRK, is loaded onto the child’s documents TAB.
Once approved the CCS gets back paid if eligible and the % and hrs per fortnight flows down to the enrolment and ACCSHourlyRateCapIncreasePercentage is updated on the enrolment.
After the first 6 weeks was granted, you can apply for ACCS determinations per 13 week lots.
