+ childcare

Listen up!

The current childcare scheme ends in 2017 (originally planned for August 2015). Sign your employees up now before it’s too late. When the government’s new Tax Free Childcare initiative replaces the current employer scheme you will NOT be able to offer it to the working parents on your payroll.

    New scheme not necessarily better for everyone

  • The existing scheme will be honoured until your employees’ children reach past the age of 15 (12 under new scheme)
  • Both parents must be working
  • Once the new initiative is in place NO new entrants will be allowed onto the current scheme
  • Only those parents signed up before 2017 will have a choice of which scheme is better

    Why offer my employees childcare vouchers now?

  • They will see you as an employer of choice looking after their interests
  • You save on employer NI contributions
  • It will increase loyalty to your company to protect their benefit
  • It may attract potential employees into your company before the deadline
  • It may dissuade good employees from leaving to another company offering vouchers

Real financial assistance for working parents

Childcare Vouchers, provided and administered by You at Work, are one of the most sought after, flexible and effective benefits that an employer can offer their employee, and gives real financial assistance to working parents.

Did you know only approximately 5% of employers currently facilitate a process that allows their employees to take advantage of this Government backed scheme?

Providing access to the Childcare Voucher scheme is a real way to prove you support your staff who have childcare costs - both men and women.

Each eligible working parent (mothers and fathers and legal guardians) can save up to £933 EACH on their childcare costs per year*, but only if you as their employer gives them access.

What’s more - it also saves your business money!

That’s right, due to it being a salary sacrifice scheme, the reductions in Tax and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) that your employees make are reflected in reduced NI contributions you as a business make.

Even after our administration fees, most companies find that they actually save money overall by implementing a Childcare Voucher scheme through You at Work - so why wouldn’t you?

If your employees have children that attend a registered child-minder, nursery, play scheme or out-of-hours club then they could be making significant savings. They can even retain the vouchers for use in the summer or as and when they need them.

It’s not just for toddlers – Childcare Vouchers can be used for children up to the age of 15

  • Save your employees up to £933 EACH in reduced childcare costs*
  • Reduce your NI employer contributions bill
  • Eligible employees include mothers, fathers or legal guardians who have childcare costs
  • Valid for all children up to 1st September of the year following their 15th birthday
  • Eligible childcare providers include, registered child-minders, nurseries, play schemes or out-of-hours clubs (including summer)
  • Fully explained user journey via the plusyou portal
  • Childcare Vouchers credited into your employees’ secure, personal, online childcare account
  • Be seen as practically supporting the working parents you employ
  • Most schemes are cost neutral for the employer or in fact save you money

*Maximum savings dependant on employee’s tax band excluding tax exempt benefits, performance related bonuses or overtime payments.
