    Tax free childcare 14th Jun 19 at 3:03 PM
    Hi,

    One of the eligibility conditions for tax-free childcare are that neither parent should earn more than 100k. Please could someone tell me if that figure is "gross salary minus pension contributions" or just gross earnings?

    Thanks in advance!

    As far as I can see it’s adjusted net income see https://www.gov.uk/tax-free-childcare and Adjusted net income https://www.gov.uk/guidance/adjusted-net-income

    It appears that gross pension contributions are allowed as deductions.

    Based on the question they ask in the form, it appears to be after deducting pension contributions
