1. What you'll get

You could get extra tax credits to help pay for some of your childcare costs while you’re working.

You could get:

  • up to £122.50 a week - for 1 child
  • up to £210 a week - for 2 children or more

You can’t get 100% of the costs and how much you get depends on things like:

  • your income
  • how often you’ve paid for childcare

Childcare vouchers

If you get childcare vouchers from your employer the amount of tax credits you get can go down.

Use the childcare voucher calculator to see how childcare vouchers from your employer affect your tax credits.
