Help with the cost of childcare with Tax-Free Childcare

From HMRC:

Families shouldn’t miss out on financial support that can help pay for childcare.

Through Tax-Free Childcare, working families can receive up to £2,000 a year per child, or £4,000 if their child is disabled, to put towards the cost of childcare. This is available for children aged up to 11, or 17 if the child has a disability.

The money can help towards the cost of holiday clubs, childminders, nurseries, and other approved childcare schemes.

The government pays 20% of the childcare costs by topping up the money paid into a Tax-Free Childcare account. This means for every £8 paid into the online account, families will automatically receive an additional £2 in government top-up.

More information about Tax-Free Childcare can be found on the Childcare Choices website.
