Employer-Supported Childcare gets a reprieve


Many employers help employees with childcare costs, often by providing childcare vouchers by way of salary sacrifice.

Following the roll out of Tax-Free Childcare (TFC), the new government scheme to help working parents, existing Employer-Supported Childcare (ESC) schemes were expected to close to new joiners from April 2018.

However following the Chancellor’s Spring Statement, education secretary Damian Hinds, made a concession to delay scrapping the scheme by six months.

The Childcare Choices website, which provides useful guidance to parents on the childcare options available to them including ESC, TFC and other free entitlements, has been updated to show that childcare vouchers will be available to new joiners until the end of September 2018.

Under the rules employees already using ESC can choose whether to remain in existing schemes or switch to TFC, but parents cannot be in both TFC and ESC at the same time.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
