Tax-Free Childcare in the UK
In 2017, the government introduced a tax-free childcare subsidy, Tax-Free Childcare (TFC). Under TFC, the tax relief available is 20% of childcare costs, up to a total of £10,000 per child per year. The scheme will therefore be worth a maximum of £2,000 per child (or £4,000 for a disabled child). Parents can apply for TFC for children under 12 (up to 17 for children with disabilities).
