Two-thirds of working parents worse off with TFC

Tax Free Childcare is Launched Earlier Than Planned

The government launched the new Tax-Free Childcare scheme today, slightly ahead of the planned start date of 28th April.

Parents with children aged 4 or younger are able to apply for TFC (in addition to pre-registering for the 30-hours childcare entitlement which commences on 1st September 2017), through the government’s digital childcare service. This is a change to the planned roll-out of TFC initially to parents of children under 2.
