Employers For Childcare

Employers For Childcare

Employers For Childcare is one of the leading childcare voucher providers in the U.K. They are a social enterprise (based in Northern Ireland) donating 100% profit for social/community benefit. They offer a managed administration service as well as an excellent on-line system. This can be viewed at their website www.employersforchildcare.org.

The Tax Exemptions allowed by HMRC, which E.F.C. promote is for working parents employed or self-employed who are PAYE and have children in registered childcare, which may be full time or just a few hours after school. Under this Government scheme to help working parents stay in employment, each parent signed up to the scheme can request that up to £55 per week or £243 per month is taken out of their salary, free of income tax and national insurance. This is paid directly to the registered childcarer and any balance due, would be paid by the parents. The tax & N.I. saving of £77.76 per month – or £933.12 each year. This will double for two working parents in the voucher scheme and could be of great help to many families.
Employers for Childcare can supply marketing materials to encourage uptake of this employee benefit. Their Childcare Benefits Advisory Service, offer via freephone, to all our member’s employees, confidential advice on whether individuals will be better off on Tax Credits or Childcare Vouchers.

In Scotland, they run the scheme for a number of organisations that include Shetland Council and The Wise Group. However this benefit is available to small organizations and individuals who are PAYE.
