Tax credits for your childcare
Nine out of ten families are eligible for some financial assistance through the new Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances.
Families with children can claim Child Tax Credit if their income is no more than the governments limit.
The amount you get depends on various things, including your annual income and is paid directly into the bank of the main carer. The other tax credit you may be entitled to, if either you or your partner is working, is called Working Tax Credit. It includes a childcare element to help families who are working and spending money on childcare.

the average weekly amount you spend on childcare
Using childcare vouchers
Lyndhurst Nursery accept childcare vouchers as part or full payment of your child’s day care costs – contact your nursery to discuss setting up this as a method of paying your invoice. Childcare Vouchers is a scheme some employers offer to help working parents save on registered childcare costs. Childcare vouchers are not means tested and are available to all working parents whose companies operate childcare voucher schemes.
The vouchers can be used to pay for all types of registered childcare including registered childminders, day nurseries, crèches, playgroups, out of school hours clubs, holiday play schemes and home childcares approved under the new Home Child carer Approval Scheme.
Your entitlement to tax credits, however, is likely to be affected. This is because you can only claim help through the childcare element of Working Tax Credit on childcare costs that you meet yourself. If your employer meets any of your childcare costs, even if your pay has reduced in return (a salary sacrifice) these costs do not count.
