Childcare Vouchers

Help with Childcare Costs

Tax-Free Childcare is a great way to save 20% on the cost of your childcare.  Create a TFC account, then each month transfer 80% of the cost of nursery fees into the account, it is then topped up by TFC and you send 100% to nursery.  This scheme is available for all parents including the self employed and there is with no cap on income.  To check for help with childcare costs: www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/tax-free-childcare

Childcare Voucher Scheme is closed to new members and only available to those previously registered.  It is implemented through your employer's payroll and allow you to make up to £900 of tax and National Insurance savings per year on your childcare costs. The vouchers are available to both mums and dads which means potential savings of over £1,800 each year.

Child Tax Credit from the Inland Revenue is awarded directly for childcare costs.  A form is available from the Child Tax Credit Office on 0345 300 3900.
