Benefits - Childcare vouchers
You may be able to receive childcare vouchers of up to £55 a week (or £243 a month) from your employer.
Childcare vouchers are usually received instead of part of your salary, through a system known as 'salary sacrifice'. Unlike your salary, you do not have to pay any tax or national insurance on childcare vouchers. Both you and your partner may be eligible to receive childcare vouchers.
This childcare vouchers scheme can be used for many types of childcare including:
- Nurseries, pre-school and playgroups
- Registered childminders
- Holiday play schemes
- Out-of-school care run by a school or local authority
Childcare vouchers may affect the amount of tax credits that you receive.
