Childcare vouchers are an employee benefit available to all eligible working parents
Launched in 1998, childcare vouchers are a scheme run by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
They are a Government-approved, tax-efficient way of paying for childcare. If you join the scheme, you can exchange up to £55† a week (£220 per 4 week pay period or £243† a month) of your gross salary for childcare vouchers.
The part of your gross salary you exchange for childcare vouchers is tax-free and exempt from National Insurance contributions (NI). Because of this, you can make savings of up to £933* a parent, a year.
It doesn’t cost you anything to sign up for childcare vouchers and the scheme applies whatever rate of tax you pay. What’s more, both parents can request childcare vouchers, giving a potential family saving of £1,866** a year!
