Childcare Vouchers

Tax-Free Childcare have replaced the Childcare Voucher Scheme from the 1 October 2018. Parents already receiving childcare vouchers will be able to continue to use them after October if their current employer continues to offer the voucher scheme, but no newcomers will be accepted.

Tax-Free Childcare is a government scheme will provide help for parents with their childcare costs. Whereas childcare vouchers have been processed through the payroll, the new system will be administered by parents through an online account which can be accessed via HMRC’s website.

You can use Childcare Vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare to pay for non-compulsory elements of school fees. Providing certain criteria are met, they can be used to pay for:-

  • Home based care such as childminders, nannies and au pairs
  • Pre-school care such as our nursery classes
  • Care for your older children out of school hours, such as out of school clubs (breakfast clubs, afterschool clubs including activities, homework clubs, and holiday clubs)
