The government has a new Tax Free Childcare scheme and this has replaced the old Salary Sacrifice Childcare Voucher scheme for new parents and carers. Members of the scheme can pay into an online account, which the government will top up by 20% (up to £2000 per year), which they can then use to pay their nursery fees.
