Childcare vouchers

What are childcare vouchers?

Childcare vouchers are a benefit offered by your employer to help you with your childcare costs. Your employer allows you to take part of your salary in the form of childcare vouchers.

This amount is Tax and NI free.

Paying for childcare this way means you have more money left in your salary than if you had paid for your childcare out of your take home pay.
