Childcare Tax Credit

In addition to childcare vouchers, parents may be entitled to Childcare Tax Credit, which pays towards the cost of pre-school, after-school and school holiday care. Parents must either be single or, when married, both parents must be working. The final amount of benefit depends upon income.

From April 2011 parents may claim up to 70% of childcare costs up to a maximum of £175.00 per week for one child and up to 70% of childcare costs up to a maximum of £300.00 per week for 2 or more children.  

Child Tax Credit

From April 2011 a number of changes have taken place on the Child Tax Credit (CTC). Parents may continue to receive Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance and Child Benefit.

Child tax credits are available to families who have an income of up to £58,000 per year. There are also a higher payment for families who have at least one child under one year old and for families with children that have a disability.
