Paying with vouchers

you save money too

We currently have a number of voucher companies we deal with.  We are also prepared to consider new ones if it benefits our customers.

We prefer electronic vouchers, as these are much less admin intensive, and quicker.

Follow the links to the left for details of each provider we already deal with.

Please bear in mind these voucher providers can take 10 days from your instruction to cleared funds to us, though usually it is about 5 days.  Late voucher payments cannot be our fault, so late fees will be incurred if cleared funds are not received before stated deadlines.

What are Childcare Vouchers?

An employee benefit available to all eligible working parents
Once an employer is registered with a voucher provider, eligible working parents can exchange up to £243 per month (£55 per week) of their gross salary for Childcare Vouchers. The exchanged part of the salary is exempt from tax and National Insurance contributions. This allows parents to make savings of up to £1,196* per parent, per year on their childcare costs.

Childcare Vouchers can be used to pay for all types of childcare
Save money on all types of registered childcare (like Harlequin) for children up to 16** years old, including day nurseries, nannies, au pairs, crèches, childminders, out of school clubs, holiday schemes, activity clubs and qualifying childcare offered by schools.

A scheme offering a potential saving of £2,392* per year
Both working parents can claim Childcare Vouchers whether they work for the same or different employers. Provided the employer offers a Childcare Vouchers scheme, you could save up to £2,392* per family, per year.

A tax initiative
Launched in 1998, Childcare Vouchers are a scheme run by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

*Subject to individual circumstances. An additional higher rate tax-payer may save more.

**1st September following 15th birthday or 1st September following 16th birthday for children with disabilities.
