Nursery voucher scheme 2015
Vouchers tend to last for a long time, so if you know you're going to have higher childcare costs during the holidays, collect vouchers in advance.
The Government used the 2013 Budget to announce that a new tax-free childcare voucher scheme would be introduced in 2015 but the launch is now delayed until 2017.
The Joneses are entitled to 70 of their childcare costs in tax credits.
It's worth noting that it'll only be available to parents of the youngest children from April 2017 and parents of other children later in the year, so if you'll be paying for childcare before the new scheme is available to you then you may wish.And if they used the new TFC scheme, itd cost them 400 4 more expensive than vouchers.The scheme will work in quarterly entitlement periods once eligible, parents will continue to be entitled to support for three months, regardless of any changes in circumstances.Pay 50 in cash and 50 in vouchers (which they had to buy) and theyre only entitled to 70 of 50 paid in cash, which is 35 of tax credits.Use the special childcare voucher calculator.
We've examined savings at a level of 10,000 childcare costs per child per year, and assessed who'd win and under which scheme.
We've never heard of this being a problem, but it's always worth checking.
