Tax free childcare
Tax free childcare is a new government scheme to help parents with their childcare costs.
From early 2017, working parents with children under 12 (under 17 for disabled children) can set up an on-line account to pay their childcare providers directly with the government topping up 20% of the payment of the services, up to a maximum contribution of £2,000 per child.
Childcare providers will be required to sign up and government will be writing to all during September and October 2016 inviting them to sign up. For more information, please visit this website.
