"In case some of your Members are not aware I was advised by a very helpful lady from the ATO that CCB rebate amount when transferred to another taxpayer (eg spouse) would not be reflected in the initial notice of assessment. I was advised by the ATO that after the checking by the relevant departments had been done, the CCB rebate that was being transferred would be issued at a later stage as an amended assessment. I guess the logic is to prevent overpayments and misuse but it seems like a round about way of doing things.
I hope what was advised to me by the ATO is correct as I have been now getting aggrieved clients off my back by telling them the cheque will be in the mail."
