Opening a Tax-Free Childcare account during maternity leave


Brenda McShane from our Family Benefits Advice Service shares some useful information on opening a Tax-Free Childcare account. Parents can open a Tax-Free Childcare 30 days before the end of maternity leave (this doesn't include any paid annual leave that may be taken prior to actually returning to work). Tax-Free Childcare pays 20% of childcare costs for eligible working families.
