This means you agree to reduce your salary by a certain value, and receive Childcare Vouchers to the same value but pay no tax or National Insurance on these vouchers. We operate the childcare voucher scheme, where employers offer their employees a voucher to set against nursery fees.
We accept all childcare vouchers, but you will need to check with your employer which scheme they use, so we can give you our account ID for the correct company.
If we are not affiliated with your employers scheme, just let us know and we will register with them for you.
