To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the cost for providers of delivering the Government's tax-free childcare scheme during the covid-19 outbreak.
21 July 2021
Tax Free Childcare (TFC) is delivered by the Childcare Service via GOV.UK. Parents and childcare providers manage their accounts via the Service.
There is not a cost to parents or providers in managing their accounts. A small number of providers may incur set up costs to ensure their processes are compatible with the online system. HM Revenue & Customs, who administer TFC, do not hold this information.
