Childcare can be one of the biggest monthly outgoings for a family so it’s important to claim every financial entitlement available to you. Each year thousands of families miss out on £1000s toward the cost of childcare – make sure you’re not one of them.
You may be able to claim:
- child tax credit – you don’t need to be working
- working tax credit – you may be able to claim extra to help cover the costs of approved childcare
You can apply for working tax credit even if you’re on leave or about to start a new job.
