From 14 February 2018 tax free childcare is open to all eligible families regardless of the age of the youngest child.

The new Tax-free Childcare scheme began on 21 April 2017 and was extended to parents whose youngest child was under 9 on 15 January 2018. Those whose youngest child was between 9 and 12 (17 if they are disabled) have had to wait an extra month to benefit under the scheme.

The scheme is open to the employed and self-employed where both parents are in paid work for more than 16 hours per week regardless of whether the employer contributes. The Government will contribute an extra 25% of the parents’ contribution, up to £2,000 per child per year. It will replace Employer childcare voucher schemes which are closed to new entrants from April 2018.

Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using as their primary TAX resource.

At a cost of just £1 per day, it’s a no brainer: FREE up your MIND and your TIME (and your wallet).

And...we run our Virtual Tax Partner support service, if you need assistance with a particular query or technical issue.
