Childcare voucher providers: cost to employers
Childcare voucher schemes - the government's scheme where you sacrifice some of your salary in exchange for an equal amount of childcare vouchers - make sense for employers and employees. Employees don't have to pay tax or NI on the vouchers. And employers don't have to pay employers' NI. So savings all round.
Childcare voucher schemes: employers' costs
Employers will have to pay a company to administer the scheme (but this cost is less than the NI saving). Here's a list of the companies and how much they charge (remember, you'll save more than this in NI).
