Help with the cost of raising a child?
The government is setting up a new tax-free childcare scheme due to start in 2015.
The governments new tax-free childcare scheme will cover 20 per cent of working families’ childcare costs up to a limit of £6,000. Amounting to £1,200 per child each year.
The scheme will replace the old childcare voucher system operated through employers. The old scheme will remain open for existing users but closed to new entrants.
Initially, the new scheme will automatically include all families with children under five and by 2020 it will be rolled out to include all children under 12.
Parents will register with a voucher provider and open an online account. The government will then ‘top up’ payments into this account at a rate of 20p for every 80p that families pay in, subject to the above limit.
