The government has announced the closing date for any new joiners to the voucher scheme has been extended by 6 months.

For those employees registered with us prior to the 05.10.18 closing date, they can continue to benifit from the voucher scheme, provided they remain with the same employer or they have has a voucher within the last twelve months.

Once an employee has left the voucher scheme to move to the Tax Free Childcare Scheme(TFC) they cannot rejoin.

As the new TFC scheme was launched April 2017,the two schemes will run side by side until firther notice.

For Employers

Chamber Childcare is a flexible, expertly supported salary sacrifice scheme that enables your staff to save hundreds of pounds on their childcare costs.

Each parent can receive either £55 per week or £243 per month of childcare vouchers. The vouchers can be redeemed at any OfSTED registered or approved setting.

A parent on a basic rate of tax can save £933 per year and this can be doubled if both parents take part in a scheme.

Employers also benefit as they are exempt from the NI element on the amount sacrificed by their staff.

It’s easy – cancellation arrangements are flexible and straight forward if your circumstances change.

How does it work?

  • You agree to let your staff enjoy the savings
  • They complete some simple forms
  • We set up the salary payment arrangements with you
  • The vouchers can be sent to the employee’s home address
  • They are used in part or full payment of their fees at their childcarers

Our childcare experts are on hand to help you and your staff and they are only a phone call away.

Chamber Childcare allows you to enhance your staff benefits package whilst reducing your employment costs. That’s why hundreds of companies have chosen to offer Chamber Childcare to their workforce.

For Parents

If your employer participates in the scheme then you can start saving money now.

  • You can use your weekly voucher allowance at any number of OfSTED registered or approved childcare providers
  • We now provide paper vouchers, e-vouchers and direct payments
  • Each voucher is valid for 12 months and can be used with more than one childcarer
  • You can save them and use them during the holiday times at holiday clubs

Is it for me?

The scheme will not be of benefit to everyone.

If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credits, you may need to check how this might be affected. If you only receive the family element of the Child Tax Credits this will not be affected.

You can do this quickly and easily by visiting the Inland Revenue's website and filling in your personal details.

For Childcarers

Registration is easy.

You just need to fill in two forms which we will send you, one confirming your details and the other to provide us with your bank details. We despatch all payments by BACS.

If you are in receipt of paper vouchers, all you need to do is to call our helpline or email us, confirm who you are and provide us with the serial numbers of vouchers you wish to redeem.

The payment process will start immediately – there are no delays on payment.
