Childcare Vouchers – Childcare Vouchers allow employers to help their employees with the cost of childcare. Childcare Vouchers are exempt from National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and Income Tax for employees up to the value of £55 per week, which can mean savings of over £2000 a year for a couple who are both working. OHM Sports & Fitness accept all childcare vouchers. All employers are able to run a childcare voucher scheme (they make savings too). Please speak to your employer for details on this.
Tax Free Childcare – This is a Government replacement for childcare vouchers. More information can be found at www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/tax-free-childcare
