Hi my name is Lyanne and I’m the managing director of Wilds. The coronavirus outbreak is having a huge impact on everyone at the moment and we are trying to provide as much support as we can during this time. Have a look at our coronavirus updates on the website and contact us if we can help with anything else.


Do your employees know how to apply for Tax-Free childcare?

There’s a simple step by step guide parents can use if they want to apply for Tax-Free Childcare, at www.gov.uk/get-tax-free-childcare

It tells them:

  • How to find out the childcare support option that’s best for them
  • How to check if they’re eligible for Tax-Free Childcare
  • How to apply for Tax-Free Childcare

If their application is successful they will get an online childcare account, where they can:

  • Select a childcare provider
  • Pay money into their account and receive the government ‘top-up’
  • Pay their childcare provider

They will need to reconfirm (every 3 months) to check that they are still eligible for Tax-Free Childcare.

You don’t need to do anything, but telling your employees about the step by step guide and where to find it may help then with their childcare costs.
