Tax Credits

Tax Credits

You may qualify for help towards the costs of childcare, if the childcare you use is registered with CIW.  If you work, you could get extra tax credits to help with your childcare costs.

Child Tax Credits support families with children (this can include children until their 16th birthday and young persons aged from 16 but under 20 years old).

You can claim whether or not you are in work.

Working Tax Credits support working people whether employed or self-employed, on low incomes by topping up their earnings.

Child Tax Credits and Working Tax Credit does not affect Child Benefit payments which are paid separately.
