Details

The ‘actual costs’ pilot was one of 3 childcare affordability pilots (CAP09). It assessed parents’ experiences of claiming under an alternative tax credits system, to see if it helped parents report childcare costs more accurately when claiming tax credits.

This pilot is called ‘actual costs’ because it used the actual tax credit amount paid towards childcare, which is 80%.
