Working with Childcarers

As childcare providers are not obliged to accept childcare vouchers, we feel it is our job to reduce their extra burden. An online voucher account provides a transparent view of payments made for each child. Remittance advices are also issued when payments are processed, which is always the same day as payment instructions are received so they do not wait long for their money.

How employees save money with childcare vouchers

Parents can currently save up to £933 per year on the cost of registered childcare.  How much they save will depend on when they joined the scheme and the rate of tax they are eligible to pay.

On the 6th April 2011 a law change came into effect which limits the maximum amount of childcare vouchers parents can claim based on their current tax rate.

The rule change affects any parent who has joined the scheme since April 2011. An old scheme member, that is, a member of the childcare voucher scheme with the same employer before April 2011, is not affected by the rule and the amount of vouchers claimed will not change.

If parents are joining the scheme now then the amount of childcare vouchers they are entitled to will vary depending on their tax rate, which will be calculated by you when they join your scheme and again every April thereafter using the Allsave Basic Earnings Assessment tool.

The table below shows the maximum available voucher amount per month for new scheme members at various tax rates as well as the old rates which apply to those who joined before April 2011, and are still scheme members.
