Could you be entitled to tax free childcare?

Could you be entitled to tax free childcare?
From the 14th of February 2018, the government have introduced a new way to help busy parents with the costs of childcare.

The government have now increased the age limit for tax-free childcare from 4 to 15 years old, so more families  can be entitled to receive support. If you’re a working parent with a child or children aged between 0-15 (16 if disabled) then you could be eligible.

Up to 70% of childcare costs would be covered with this scheme. Depending on your income, you could receive a maximum of £122.50 per week for one child and £210 for two or more children.

Employed parents can open an online account on the dedicated Childcare Choices website. For every £8 paid into the account, the government will add £2. This could equate up to £2000 a year per child or £4000 for the parents of disabled children.

The money from this account can then be used to pay for childcare from registered:

·      Childminders

·      Nurseries and Nannies

·      After school clubs and play schemes

·      Schools

·      Home care workers from a registered home care agency

Even if you are self-employed or not working, you might still be eligible for tax-free childcare. You may also be eligible for other childcare benefits from the government such as 15 or 30 hours free childcare.
