As a result of announcement by the Minister for Health and Aged Care on 19 August 2016, changes to the duration of the approval period of all new ACCs will be shortened to 6 months. During this period the relevant tax for new ACCs will be reduced to $500.

There are no changes for those ACCs that are renewing or subject to merger or acquisition, the standard 12 month arrangements will apply and the tax remains at $1000.

Information available on this page will be updated within 10 working days.
