Hi all

I'm currently eligible for the £2,000 tax free childcare from HM Government.  That won't be the case for the 2023/2024 tax year as my earnings will likely exceed the £100K threshold (even after I've made the maximum pension contribution).

I did have one query re timing.  On 10 March 2023, I'll need to reconfirm my income to determine availability of credit for April - June 2023 (I think it works on calendar months)

Am I able to state income is under the threshold at this point then deposit £2K into my childcare account before the end of the 2022/2023 tax year.
