Help from Employers – Childcare Vouchers
Childcare Vouchers are a great way for employers to give working parents help with dependent children. They can help you find quality childcare to suit the needs of your family – and, because you don’t pay tax or National Insurance on Childcare Vouchers, you can save about £1,000 per year.
Don’t worry if your employers not registered with a voucher company, there are several to choose from e.g. Edenred, Computershare, Fideliti, Kiddivoucher.
You can get help with childcare fees through tax free childcare.
For working families with children under 12 years old, or 17 years old if your child has additional needs. For every £8.00 you pay in, the government with pay in £2.00.
