Childcare vouchers


Childcare vouchers

Childcare voucher schemes are being phased out by the HMRC and are now closed to new applicants. 

However, anyone on the Church of England’s payroll who joined a scheme on or before 4th October 2018 can continue.

See more about these schemes on the national Church of England website and the Government website.

Tax-Free Childcare, an alternative

The Government has introduced an alternative to Vouchers, called tax-free childcare which is independent from payroll.

You set up an account and every time you pay money in, the Government will top it up by 20%. The money can then be used to pay for approved childcare.

For all the information, see the national Church of England website.
