What are child care vouchers?

This is NOT a tax credit or a scheme for families with low incomes

Childcare Vouchers are only available to working parent, who pay TAX and NI. Each working parent can benefit from significant tax and NI savings of up to £1,195 a year using Childcare Vouchers, and up to double the amount if both parents are working.

Status Annual Tax
exempt amount
Basic rate (contracted out) 20% tax 10.4% NI £2,916 £886
Basic rate (contracted in) 20% tax 12% NI £2,916 £933
Higher rate in the scheme prior to 6/04/11 40% tax 2% NI £2,916 £1,225
Additional rate in the scheme prior to 6/04/11 50% tax 2% NI £2,916 £1,516
Higher rate category 40% tax 2% NI £1,484 £623
Additional rate category 50% tax 2% NI £1,166 £606

As a guide if you earn above £45,391, you are likely to fall into the higher rate category. If you earn above £151,484, you are likely to fall into the additional rate category.


Employers must offer childcare vouchers to all employees and both male and female employees should be able to participate in the scheme.

  • You must have parental responsibility for the child - the child must be your child, your stepchild or a child for whom you have parental responsibility
