Tax Credits

You could get extra money towards your childcare costs in the form of tax credits while you’re working.

Child care vouchers

Your employer may offer a Childcare Voucher scheme which means you can reduce your day nursery fees, and if there are two parents or carers then you can make double the savings.

Changes are being introduced to the scheme from Autumn 2015 and it will alter what you are entitled to.

The vouchers may also affect your tax credits so get in touch with you local Working Tax credit office to find out more. Also if your cash salary is below the National Minimum Wage you may not be eligible.

If your employer does run the childcare voucher scheme, come and talk to us so we can give you the necessary information.
