Tax Free Childcare
Am I eligible?
For working families, including the self-employed, in the UK
Earning under £100k and at least £152 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each
Who aren't receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers
With children aged 0-11 (or 0-16 if disabled)
What support will I receive?
For every £8 you pay into an online account the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child per year
How can I use it?
You can use Tax-Free Childcare all year round to spend on regulated childcare such as:
Childminders, nurseries and nannies
Before and after-school clubs and holiday clubs
For example, if your childcare costs are £750 per month, you would pay £600 into your childcare account and the government would pay in £150. This would be an annual saving of £1,800 per child.
