Hi, I'd appreciate a view on the following:
Yesterday I phoned the tax credits helpline to submit a renewal for my wife and I. I was asked about salary sacrifice and I told them my wife does it for Childcare vouchers to the max allowed. The guy at the other end (after checking with someone at his end) then said that we had to reduce the amount we were claiming for the childcare costs pro-rata for the amount we received in the vouchers, which essentially knocked £56 per week off the costs. Presumably this may reduce the tax credit we will get.
Has anybody else come across this - it isn't mentioned in the Guidance Notes? Any thoughts to how it will impact on our tax credits?

I am a 24 year old father of one. My daughter starts full-time education in September whilst I start my new career as trainee secondary education teacher.
I am no longer with the mother of my child who claims income support and child benefits for our daughter.
I was wondering if I was entitled to claim working child tax credits or benefits myself in any other way?
I earn less than £18k before tax and pay for my daughter to take part in summer schools and extra curricular activities. Any help with this matter would be much appreciated.

Hi can anyone help me out with this as Ive looked online and it isnt very clear. My daughter goes to Nursery 3 full days a week and the nursery charge per day rather then per hour. When she is entitled to the free 15 hours is the maximum she can use only 2.5 hours per day, or could she have 1 whole free day per week? And does anyone have any experience in if it is only 2.5 hours per day how do the nursery deduct that if you pay per day rather then hourly?
Hope this makes sense

Same here only 2 days instead. From what I can tell, you can have the hours on the same day but there has to be a gap at lunch so I figure the bursery would bill you that hour. I suspect the easiest way for them to do it is minus it from what you pay. So the gov pay for 15 (tho I thought it was still 12) hours, so say thats at £10 per hour they pay for £150 of care, minus that from your weekly bill and you pay the remainder. I wont know myself till next year tho so do come back and tell
But overall, best bet is asking the nursery. Am sure they will know how to deal with it, you cant be the first with children on day rather then hour rate :cool:
