Tax free childcare

May 13, 2019

HMRC have asked us to share the below communication for agents designed to make sure your clients know about tax-free childcare and how it could reduce their childcare costs.

“Tax-Free Childcare is a government scheme available to working parents, including the self-employed, with children aged 0 to 11.

Eligible parents can get up to £2,000 per child per year towards qualifying childcare. For clients with 2 children, it could mean a £4,000 saving per year on the family’s budget.

Parents can use it on a wide range of registered childcare, including:

  • childminders
  • nurseries
  • breakfast clubs, after school clubs and holiday clubs.

For disabled children, the scheme is available up to the age of 16 with a maximum government contribution of £4,000 per child per year.

Please tell your clients to visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to find out more information and how to applyGuidance on the changes will be published in due course.”
