The tax-free childcare scheme

The new scheme will be available to working families who each earn less than £150,000 a year, and don’t already receive support through Tax Credits or Universal Credit. In two parent familes, both parents must be in work to qualify.

For every 80p eligible families pay in, the government will put in 20p, providing support of up to £2,000 a year for each child. Parents will be able to use the vouchers for any Ofsted regulated childcare in England and the equivalent bodies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
