Tax and NI free support for childcare has been around for some time, but a number of new clients that have joined us recently were unaware that their businesses, as employers, were able to provide them with tax and NI free childcare vouchers of up to £55 per week or £243 per month – that’s £2,916 per annum available to you tax free to help with childcare costs! – and this equally applies to small owner managed businesses operating PAYE schemes.
You may have heard this year’s budget announce a new scheme to be phased in from 2015 but employers can continue to take new members – including owner / managers - into the existing arrangement until April 2015.
