Help with childcare costs

posted 13 Oct 2013, 10:44 by cgreene@offasmeadacademy.org

Did you know you can get tax credits to help with childcare costs?

Our Breakfast Club (every weekday morning from 8am)

and Cool Club (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays until 6pm)

are both registered and approved.

How much help you can get

You can get help with up to 70 per cent of your childcare costs - up to certain limits.

If you pay childcare for:

  • one child, the maximum childcare cost you can claim is £175 a week
  • two or more children, the maximum cost you can claim is £300 a week

This means that the maximum help you can get for your childcare is:

  • £122.50 a week for one child
  • £210 a week for two or more children

But you won't necessarily get the full £122.50 or £210 a week - the actual amount you get will depend on your income. The lower your income, the more tax credits you can get.

 

Please visit http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/taxcredits for more information.

 

You will need our URN (Unique Reference Number) which we will happily provide.
