Employer Supported Childcare (Childcare Vouchers) - How do I claim Employer Supported Childcare?

If you are working, you might get help with childcare costs through Employer Supported Childcare. It is up to your employer to decide whether they want to offer Employer Supported Childcare or not.

How do I claim Employer Supported Childcare?

You apply for Employer Supported Childcare through your employer. They will be able to tell you which voucher provider they use, or provide details of any subsidy or workplace nursery they may run.

Employer Supported Childcare is gradually being replaced by a new Tax Free Childcare scheme from early 2017, see our Tax Free Childcare information sheet., but new claims for directly contracted childcare and childcare vouchers will be accepted up until October 2018.

What documents will I need to claim Employer Supported Childcare?

The voucher provider will tell you what documents you need to provide. You will need the name and contact details of your childcare provider.
