This page summarises the key points about the Childcare Voucher Scheme for employers. If you would more detailed information please download a Employer Pack.
Childcare Vouchers are a government-initiated scheme available from employers for employees to use to pay for their childcare costs. Childcare Vouchers have been designed to make childcare more affordable for working parents.
Most commonly, Childcare Vouchers are implemented using salary sacrifice. Employees simply exchange part of their salary, up to £243 per month, for Childcare Vouchers, which are then used to pay the employees' registered childcare provider. As Childcare Vouchers attract tax and National Insurance savings, employees can save up to £933 per year on the cost of their childcare.
Childcare Vouchers save money for organisations as well as for employees, as they do not attract employer's National Insurance contributions. Employers can save up to £402 per employee on the scheme, per year. Even though employers are required to pay a small service charge, this will always be less than the savings employers can make.
