Help with the costs of childcare

Families can access help with the costs of childcare in a variety of ways, through the tax credits system, vouchers provided by employers and tax free childcare accounts.

Tax-Free Childcare

Tax-free childcare is an additionality (of up to £2,000 per year, per child) for parents to pay for registered childcare.  

Parents and government both pay into a tax-free childcare account which then pays the service. Any money left over in the account when childcare is no longer needed is returned to parent and government. 

The scheme covers 20% of childcare costs e.g. ASC sessions costs £10 = parent pays £8, govt pays £2.
     To be eligible the child must be 11 or under and usually live with the parent. They stop being eligible on 1 September after their 11th birthday. Adopted children are eligible, but foster children are not. Parents must be earning at least the national minimum wage or living wage for at least 16 hours a week for at least 3 months. Parents can earn up to £100,00 per year. Find out more
