Can parents pay you using Tax-Free Childcare?
01 Nov 2019
Parents can use Tax-Free Childcare to pay for:
- pre-schools, day nurseries and out-of-school care
- registered childminders
- school based care (that is paid for, such as after-school and holiday clubs)
When parents apply for Tax-Free Childcare they set up an online childcare account. For every £8 you pay into the account, the government will add £2, or £4 for children with a disability. The government will pay up to £2,000 per child per year, or £4,000 per year for children with a disability.
They use this account to pay their childcare provider. If parents make a payment to their provider before 2:30pm it will reach the provider's account the same day, after this time or at weekends it will be the next working day.
