Recent Government introduction of Tax Free Childcare has led to parents assessing their current arrangements. There is still a lot of confusion regarding which option may be best suited to individual circumstances.
The government are soon to double the amount of free childcare available to eligible families. The childcare entitlement applies for children aged three and four, as well as most disadvantaged two-year olds. This initiative is to incentivise parents to return to work, or increase their working hours and not feel the pressure of having to support additional childcare costs.
