If you're working more than 16 hours a week and you're on a low income, you may be able to get Working Tax Credit.
The Working Tax Credit includes a specific element to support the cost of registered or approved childcare for working parents. The childcare element can help with up to 80 per cent of your eligible childcare costs.
There are limits on the weekly costs you can claim. If you pay childcare for:
- one child, the maximum you can claim is £175 a week
- two or more children, the maximum is £300 a week
To find out if you are eligible for Tax Credits, contact the Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900 or textphone 0845 300 3909 (open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm seven days a week except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).
