Help with Childcare Costs
Childcare Vouchers are 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.
The employer also saves because the amount each parent swaps (for Childcare Vouchers) is exempt from employer's National Insurance Contributions.
Tax-Free Childcare is another option to check for help with childcare costs: www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/tax-free-childcare
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.
Employers For Childcare Vouchers are the only Childcare Voucher provider that is a Social Enterprise, therefore 100% of its profits are reinvested into its charitable activities: advice and information services for parents on childcare and work-related issues.
