Tax-Free Childcare

The new Tax-Free Childcare scheme, or TFC for short - an alternative to childcare vouchers - has been rolled out by government.
In a nutshell, through TFC the government will pay £2 for every £8 parents pay for childcare. This is capped at £2,000 a year. While some parents will be better off with TFC, we believe that most will save more money with childcare vouchers.
Childcare voucher schemes, like the one we offer, will only stay open to new entrants until October 2018. After that time, TFC will be the only option. So, if you're a parent, it's important to find out which scheme works best for you; and if you'd be better off with childcare vouchers, you'll need to sign up before the deadline.
We’re here to help you understand the differences between TFC and childcare vouchers. If you’re a parent we want to help you make the right choice for your family; and if you’re an employer or carer we want to help you to give the right advice.
