Almost 9 out of 10 four year olds and 2 in 10 five year olds were enrolled in a preschool program in 2016, according to a report published today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

ABS spokesperson Michelle Marquardt reported that across the nation in 2016, there were 344,676 children aged four or five years enrolled in a preschool program and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children made up 5 per cent (16,598) of this total.

"Of the children enrolled in a preschool program in 2016, 43 per cent were enrolled in preschools and 51 per cent in Long Day Care (LDC) centres," Ms Marquardt said.
Tax minimisation strategies for child care providers: The why, what, when, where and how
by Peter Khalil
Tax minimisation is legal. Tax evasion isn't. One permits the use of strategies to pay less tax within the intent of the law, while the other is about deliberate exploitation of the tax system. Not declaring cash income or under-declaring income would be an example of tax evasion.

Tax minimisation starts with the type of business structure you use to operate your centre and to distribute income and profits. Getting the right advice in this area is vital. Setting up the right structure for your business will, to a large degree, determine the tax planning that can be done, and therefore the amount of tax you can save over the lifetime of owning your centre or centres. Consider your business structure enables you to save $10,000 in tax per year then multiply this over 12 years – that equates to $120,000 in tax savings.
