Childcare businesses registered in accordance with section 58C of the Child Care Act 1991 and businesses who commenced to trade after 1 November 2019 will have to complete a declaration as part of the Employer Eligibility Review platform on ROS as follows: “I declare that I have correctly completed this/these box(es) which exempts me from completion of the monthly employer eligibility review screens.” This needs to be undertaken on a once off basis before 15 August to ensure exemption from the requirement to complete the electronic form for the remainder of 2021.

Failure to complete and submit the EWSS Eligibility Review Form that confirms the requisite reduction and related declaration will result in suspension of payment of EWSS claims.

Further information on how to complete this form is available in this recorded presentation
