    Tax Free Childcare 6th Sep 19 at 9:46 AM
    Hi - just trying using tax free childcare this month.
    I paid in my 80% of my childcare bill this month 3 days ago, when will the top up from the government be paid in?
    I got this email, when checking today the cleared funds showing in my account are 72 with zero for government top up:

    Thank you for making a payment of 72.00 on 3 September 2019 to XXXX' childcare account.

    This will reach your childcare account within the next working day, or 2 working days if your payment was made after 9pm. (Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays don't count as working days).

    Please allow at least 1 working day between paying money into your childcare account and making a payment to your childcare provider. This gives time for the money to clear. You can also check the amount of 'available funds' to spend in your childcare account.

    I need to book afterschool club for next week so do i just withdraw my money, i dont want to risk waiting too long to withdraw my money either!
