CCS Calculator API

The Child Care Subsidy Calculator API (FY24 CCS Rates) is developed for Centre Based Day Care services who want to have an integrated CCS calculator for their centre website with the flexibility to customize the data input interface without embedding our online CCS calculator in a HTML Inline Frame element (iframe).

Please Note: Unless you have received written permission from us, you should not use this CCS API to provide any kind of commercial services to any third-party organizations other than using it on your centre's website no matter the service you provide is free or paid.

From 7 March 2022 the Australian Government will increase CCS for certain families who are eligible for the higher CCS. We have created a new API for the higher CCS. You need to create a process on your site to judge if a child is eligible for the higher CCS. If the child is eligible you can then call the Higher Child Care Subsidy Calculator API by passing the correct variables to it. Please refer to the instruction in the CCS Calculator API Code file on how to call the new Higher Child Care Subsidy Calculator API. You can see an example of Higher Child Care Subsidy Calculator API implementation.

In order to use our CCS Calculator API, you need to have an API key. If you haven't got an API key, please click on the "Get CCS Calculator API Key" button below to get one.

The API is currently free to use and you only need to put a link (preferably right under your CCS calculator) back to our website using the code below:

The API is very flexible. You don't even to have all the fields in the Example Child Care Subsidy Calculator API Form above.

If you don't need the higher CCS option (the "Is this child eligible for Higher CCS?" field) you don't need to have it in your form. Here is an exmple without the higher CCS input.

If you only want the users to enter their family income you don't need to set the "Do you know your CCS Percentage?" field. Here is an exmple using family income only.
