Parents to get help from Tax-Free Childcare benefit

Parents are asked to make sure they do not miss out on money to help pay for childcare during the summer holidays.

Through the tax-free childcare benefit, families can receive up to £ 2,000 per year per child – or £ 4,000 if their child is disabled – to spend on childcare costs.

It is available to young people up to 11, or 17 if the child has a disability, with the UK government paying 20% ​​of the cost by supplementing the money paid into a tax-free childcare account.

The money can help cover the cost of holiday clubs, babysitting and childcare.

A spokesman for HM Revenue and Customs said: “Tax-free childcare helps families with the cost of childcare bills, but we know parents can miss it.

“That is why we encourage families to enroll now and save on childcare costs.

“There are many fantastic holiday clubs and childcare providers to help working parents during the summer holidays, so now is the time to take advantage of this support.”
