Employer Childcare Vouchers

Childcare voucher schemes are available through many companies in the form of salary sacrifice. If your company participates in such a scheme, salary deduction of up to £243.00 each month can be deducted, which will not thereby be subject to Income Tax or National Insurance.
The company will then pass on the full £243.00 to its associated voucher company, which will either already have details of how to pay the vouchers directly to the School or make arrangements to set up payment.
