no. You can only claim childcare costs when they are supplied by a registered child minder or nursery. Even if the grand parent registered, they would have to look after more then just your child. Tho I am surprised grand parents would charge, certainly the type of amounts that would mean you got credits (about £130+ per week)

If a child can have 15 hours free care the term after their third birthday, does this get reflected when claining for childcare tax credit? For example a parent states on the form that their child attends a nursery for 5 days a week at a cost of thirty pounds a day. does the child tax credit office pay a percentage based on the hundred and fifty pounds paid a week by that family or do they take off the amount that child gets free (15 hours a week) and then pay the percentage based on this new figure?

Question: I currently do the maximum £243 salary sacrifice on childcare vouchers and am a 40% tax-payer, and want to know whether when I change employer, still in same tax bracket, I can continue at this rate or will I have to reduce due to changes introduced in April 2011? Any advise welcome, thanks
