We enjoy sharing this kind of information as this is good news for parents.

On 1 July 2014, the rates for paid parental leave increased. If you’re self-employed or an employee and eligible for paid parental leave, you may receive up to a maximum of $504.10 a week before tax.

If you’re self-employed and make a loss or earn less than the minimum wage, for at least 10 hours work a week, the payment is $142.50 each week before tax (equivalent to 10 hours each week at the current minimum wage rate).

If you’d like a fact sheet on your obligations as an employer or on paid parental leave for self-employed people, please contact us.
