Childcare Vouchers- As Casa Clubs are Ofsted registered you may be able to get Childcare vouchers. This allows employers to help their employees with the cost of childcare. Childcare vouchers are exempt from national insurance contribution’s (NICS) and income tax for employees up to the value of £55 per week, which can mean a saving of over £2000 a year for a couple who are both working. Please speak with your employer to see if this is something they offer or could offer for you.
We are registered with many childcare voucher providers; the list of providers will be available in your account. However if we are not registered with a provider you use, please let us know and we will be happy to sign up with them.
You can use your childcare vouchers to pay for your childcare for all or part of your bill.
Tax Free Childcare: This scheme is available to working parent/s who earn at least £120 a year and no more than £100,000 per year. Tax free childcare is available to all children up to the age of 12 years old and to children with disabilities up to the age of 17. For every 80p you pay in the scheme the government top up 20p. This is equivalent of the tax most people pay - 20% - which gives the scheme its name, ‘tax-free’. The government will top up the account with 20% of childcare costs up to a total of £10,000 - the equivalent of up to £2,000 support per child per year (or £4,000 for disabled children).
