HMRC support with childcare costs

With more employees going back to work after the end of CJRS furlough support, they need to start thinking about childcare if they have children.

If they haven’t already done so employees should set up a “Tax-Free” Childcare Account to help pay towards the cost of childminders, breakfast and after school clubs, nursery fees and approved play schemes.

For every £8 an eligible family pay into the special account the government adds £2, up to £2,000 a year, or up to £4,000 a year if a child is disabled. The scheme is available to parents or carers who have children aged up to 11, or 17 if their child is disabled.
