What are Childcare Vouchers?
Childcare Vouchers are a cost-saving employee benefit, available to all working parents throughout the UK. It is a salary sacrifice scheme, implemented through an employer’s payroll.
Put simply, employees can swap part of their salary (tax and National Insurance free) to contribute towards their childcare costs, for children up to the age of 15.
What are the benefits of Childcare Vouchers?
Each working parent could save over £900 per year on childcare by using the Childcare Voucher scheme, because the amount they swap is deducted from their salary before tax and National Insurance is applied.
Both mums and dads can register for Childcare Vouchers, which means potential household savings of up to £1,800 each year.
The employer also saves money because the amount each parent swaps from their salary is exempt from employers’ National Insurance Contributions.
