Employer-supported childcare scheme (childcare vouchers)  UPDATE

The childcare vouchers scheme, also known as employer-supported childcare, is now set to close for new applicants from October 2018 instead of April 2018.

Due to the late announcement of the extension, the Government have agreed an easement for those employers who closed their schemes to new applicants early, in anticipation of the original April closure.

ICAEW have published a helpful update on the scheme, the latest easement and clarifications about the closure, which is available on their website
