Income Threshold for ECE Financial Reporting
The Ministry of Education has introduced an income threshold for early childhood education (ECE) financial reporting.
The income threshold will mean that ECE services with a Ministry income of $80,000 (incl GST) or less will not have to provide audited financial reports. ECE services with a Ministry income of more than $80,000 (incl GST) will still have to meet the Ministry’s financial reporting requirements.
When does the income threshold come into effect?
The income threshold comes into effect on 1 January 2011 and will apply to the financial year ending in 2011.
The income threshold does not apply to the financial year ending in 2010. All ECE services, regardless of income, must send audited financial reports to the Ministry by 30 June 2011 for the financial year ending in 2010.
The timing of the introduction of the income threshold is outlined in the table below:
