Tax-Free Childcare: Managing a Tax-Free Childcare account

Once the claimant has set-up their childcare account and HMRC have confirmed their eligibility, they can begin to pay money into it and use it to pay for their childcare costs.

In England, the same childcare account also covers 30-hours free childcare and those eligible will receive a code for their 30-hours free childcare which they need to give to their childcare provider.
