Vouchers can be offered by your employer in addition to your salary but are more commonly offered as part of a ‘salary sacrifice’ scheme. This entails your some of your salary being sacrificed for child care vouchers; as the vouchers are exempt from National insurance contributions your NI contributions are reduced, thus saving up to 11% on NIC.
If your employer provides childcare vouchers, the first £55 per employee per week is exempt from tax and national insurance (and employer’s national insurance). Your employer will need to be signed up to a childcare voucher company. Employees in receipt of childcare vouchers can ‘pay’ their nanny via vouchers. The nanny will then redeem the value of the voucher from the childcare voucher company usually by direct debit into their bank account.
Your nanny will be required to be registered via Ofsted Childcare Register and meet their criteria.
View our Ofsted Registration page on how to get your nanny Ofsted approved.
