Tax-free childcare scheme

printer Mail

Working parents or carers who are normally eligible for tax-free childcare or 30 hours free childcare but have temporarily fallen below the minimum income requirement as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to receive financial support until 31 October 2020, HMRC has announced.

HMRC’s note also reconfirms the previously announced policy that critical workers who exceed the income threshold for the 2020–21 tax year as a result of working more in order to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic will also continue to receive support (the temporary increase in the maximum income threshold for critical workers is set out in regulations – SI 2020/656).
