What is Tax-Free Childcare?

Tax-Free Childcare is a government initiative aiming to alleviate childcare costs for working parents. To participate, you create an online account on the government’s website, GOV.UK, and contribute funds that are matched by the government with an additional 20%, mirroring the typical tax rate. This scheme provides support of up to £2,000 per child (or £4,000 for disabled children) annually, up to a total childcare cost of £10,000.

Are you eligible for Tax-Free Childcare?

Eligible individuals can apply for all their children simultaneously, including adopted children, as long as they are under 12 (or 17 for children with disabilities). Eligibility is contingent on factors such as employment status, income, child’s age and circumstances, and immigration status. It’s crucial to assess if Tax-Free Childcare is the most suitable option, especially if already receiving Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Universal Credit, or childcare vouchers.

Tax Free Childcare Application

How to Apply:

The application process takes about 20 minutes, requiring details like National Insurance numbers and, if self-employed, the Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR).

After approval, payments to the childcare provider can be made tax-free through the government account. Logging in and ensuring “cleared funds” will enable secure and timely payments, reflecting in the childcare provider’s account within 24 hours, contingent on their bank’s processing time.

I can’t recommend Goslings enough. It’s a small, family-like setting which enables the children to develop really strong relationships with each other and their teachers. The staff are energetic, creative, and loving. Activities are varied so no two days are the same. We love it here, our son has absolutely thrived.

Wonderful nursery with an incredible team! The staff are so involved, professional and warm - they have created a great little nursery here. The garden was redone in 2021 and it's a lovely bit of outdoors for the kids to enjoy too. Our kids really enjoy the friendly faces and constantly-changing activities.

We've had over three years experience of Gosling's with two kids and it's been nothing but positive. The thing that jumps out from day one is the sheer love and care from all of the staff in the nursery. For us this has always been the most important factor - sending your kids into a place where you know they're well looked after and loved.
