Changes to variable fees
If the income of a person paying variable fees falls, their fees can be reduced. If the resident leaves the hostel and returns to it under a new agreement or to another facility, that person will be assessed under the new fee structure applying to residents admitted after 1 October 1997.
If the fees fall below the amount that would be paid under the new income testing rules, the old variable fee will cease to apply and the new income tested fee will be charged.
