Childcare Vouchers extended!

Parents and Employers gain six-month extension to sign up for Childcare Vouchers.

Childcare Vouchers

Making savings for both you and your employees

Would you like to offer your staff a way to save money on their childcare costs, as well as saving you money on National Insurance Contributions? Employers For Childcare can help through our salary sacrifice Childcare Voucher scheme, which helps parents with meeting the costs of childcare through their employer.

Put simply, the Childcare Voucher scheme enables parents to swap part of their monthly salary, tax and National Insurance Contributions free, for Childcare Vouchers. In addition to savings being made by the parents, the employer also makes a saving as the amount each parent swaps from their salary is exempt from National Insurance Contributions.

Government announce six-month extension of the Childcare Voucher scheme

Following a Parliamentary Debate and Vote to keep Childcare Vouchers (13.03.18) open to new entrants, the Government has decided to offer a six month extension to the Childcare Voucher scheme.  This extension will allow parents to sign up and employers to ensure they are offering the scheme.  It will also allow Employers For Childcare to continue our lobbying work to ensure the long term provision of Childcare Vouchers as part of a comprehensive package of childcare support for working families.

By offering the Childcare Voucher scheme to your employees you will:

  • Make savings on employers’ National Insurance Contributions
  • Reduce absenteeism and increase staff morale, motivation and productivity
  • Save your employees money on the costs of childcare
  • Be seen to be supporting your staff and helping them to achieve a better work-life balance

Our team of Client Account Managers will guide you step by step through the registration process and are available daily from 8am-5pm to provide you, the employer, with all the technical support you need to run the scheme efficiently in your workplace.

The Employers For Childcare Voucher scheme is the only scheme that is a Social Enterprise which distributes 100% profit for social good.
