Tax-free childcare

Tax-free childcare (TFC) is a new scheme that will be introduced gradually from January 2017. It was originally supposed to start in October 2015 however the scheme was delayed.

TFC is the Government’s new way of providing childcare support to parents and it will eventually replace directly contracted childcare and childcare vouchers currently offered through employers.
