At Xplor, we want to make the End of Financial Year for your service run smoothly. To make this process easy and help your service keep your records up-to-date, your service can use our EYOF recommended process below to make this task a simple process for your Administrators.
As the end of the financial year approaches, services need to ensure that all sessions for the 2020/2021 financial year have been submitted to CCS. Once the cut-off date is assigned, a dispensation will need to be granted by CCSS to make additional submissions for the period.
Please check to ensure all your CWA’s have been signed and Government enrolments are submitted and confirmed.
Missing CWA Report can be located by following Reports > CCS Reports > Provider Level > + Select a Report > Missing CWA Approvals
CCS Enrolment Master Guide will guide you through how to make changes to your government enrolments before the cut off date for submissions and CCS payments
- Please follow the steps outlined here if you need to complete a Primary Carer Change before the cut off date

Families must confirm their income each financial year to ensure they are paid the correct amount of Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This is called balancing or reconciliation. When your families are updating their activity test or income estimate for the new or previous financial year, this may cause a change to their entitlements.
The DESE has created a guide to assist your families understand and complete the balancing process.
These changes can create a fluctuation to the next Direct Debit run for your service in Xplor:
- Managing and Understanding Automatically Scheduled Payments
- Creating and Updating Scheduled Payment Plans for Parents

In limited, specified circumstances, a provider may need to submit new session reports late, or vary or withdraw session reports after the date on which the department restricts access to the child care subsidy system.
The DESE provides a digital form as the channel by which providers apply to the Department to make changes in a previous FY to ensure that there is no financial impact on child care providers and families.
In order for this form to function correctly you will need to download the form to your computer and open the form using Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed you can download it for free from the Adobe Website.
