If you are a sole-trader you are unable to obtain any tax relief for your childcare costs. If you trade via a Limited company the answer is a little different.
Currently, your company can pay up to £243 per month (in total, not per child) per qualifying employee.
No income tax or NI is payable on the benefit and the company can claim the expense against income.
If both parents earn a wage from the company then you are both entitled to claim this amount as long as the child is in qualifying childcare.
This scheme will be replaced in Autumn this year by the government’s new ‘Tax-free Childcare scheme’
You will still be able to set up the childcare scheme outlined above until the new government scheme is available.
Existing schemes will run alongside the government’s new scheme.
