HMRC advises parents can save £2,000 per child per annum


LONDON: As schools reopen and pupils return to the classrooms, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is reminding working parents that they could save up to £2,000 per child per year to pay towards after-school clubs and other childcare services.

 The services included range from breakfast clubs, to nurseries, to after-school clubs.

All families have to do is pay into their Tax-Free Childcare account and for every £8 that they deposit, the UK Government immediately makes a top-up payment of an additional £2.

Please highlight this opportunity to your audiences. The attached press release was aimed at families in Scotland, where classes resumed from the 11th of August, however schools are now due to return across the UK (Northern Ireland from 24th August, England from 1st/2nd September and Wales from September).
