Information about HMRC Tax-Free Childcare..
From early 2017 the Government has created a scheme to allow working parents eligible for Tax-Free Childcare to set up an online Tax-Free Childcare account to pay for their childcare.
For every £8 a parent pays into their Childcare Account, the government adds an extra £2. Parents could get up to £2,000 per child per year towards their childcare costs.
Parents will only be able to pay a Provider from their new childcare account if they are already signed up to Tax-Free Childcare.
Whilst parents can't make payments using both Tax-Free Childcare and childcare vouchers, childcare providers who are signed up to Tax-Free Childcare can receive payments from both schemes.
Gisburn School is now registered for the scheme and parents who want to apply to the scheme should go to: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/.
Please inform school if you are going to use the scheme, thank you.
