Closure of Childcare Vouchers

This written statement was released on 29 March 2018 from HM Treasury on the closure of childcare vouchers:

‘Today the government has made The Income Tax (Limited Exemptions for Qualifying Childcare Vouchers and other Childcare) (Relevant Day) Regulations 2018 (SI 2018/450). These Regulations set 4th October 2018 as the date when childcare vouchers and directly contracted childcare, part of Employer Supported Childcare, will close to new entrants. After that date, parents who are already using vouchers can continue to do so for as long as they remain with their employer, and their employer continues to offer the scheme.’
