Childcare Vouchers typically operate through salary sacrifice. A salary sacrifice arrangement is an agreement by an employer to reduce an employee’s cash pay, usually in return for a non-cash benefit. Under the Childcare Voucher scheme employees may ‘sacrifice’ part of their pay in exchange for Childcare Vouchers. This is done pre-tax, meaning that employees save money on tax and National Insurance Contributions. Childcare Vouchers can only be used to pay for registered childcare.
Each eligible parent can sacrifice a maximum of £243 per month (this depends on their tax band) from their salary into their Childcare Voucher account, saving them £77.76 each month – up to £933 in a year. This helps working parents to make a saving on what they pay for their childcare.
We currently accept childcare vouchers from the following providers:
Co Operative Flexible Benefits
PLEASE NOTE THIS INFORMATION IS DATED CORRECT - August 2023
The scheme is open to employed and self-employed parents, so long as both parents are working, and the possible saving is £2,000 per child. There is also a minimum income requirement and maximum income cut-off (currently £100,000). This differs from the Childcare Voucher scheme which only applies to employed parents, however only one parent needs to be in employment and there is no cut-off for high earners. Whether parents are better offer staying with the Childcare Voucher scheme or signing up to the Tax-Free Childcare scheme therefore depends on whether both parents are employed (or self-employed), how many children they have, and how much they earn.
The idea is that as a parent/carer you set up an online Childcare Account via the GOV.UK website. For every £8.00 that a parent deposits in the account, the Government will immediately top this up by a further £2.00, up to a maximum of £2,000 over the course of the year. Parents can then use the funds in their Childcare Account to pay for childcare at settings that are registered for Tax-Free Childcare. Only settings that are registered with a UK regulatory body (ie Ofsted if you are based in England) can register with the Tax-Free Childcare scheme.
Note that parents can't use the Tax-Free Childcare scheme if they are also in receipt of other support towards childcare costs, such as employer-supported Childcare Vouchers, or the childcare element of Tax Credits or Universal Credit.
