Tax-Free Childcare to launch in 2017 following court ruling

The government has welcomed a judgment from the Supreme Court that found the proposals for delivering Tax-Free Childcare to be lawful. The new Tax-Free Childcare Scheme was being challenged by some of the providers of the childcare vouchers typically used in the current Employer Supported Childcare arrangements.

The scheme is now expected to launch from early 2017. The existing Employer Supported Childcare scheme will remain open to new entrants until Tax-Free Childcare is launched.

Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, Damian Hinds said:

'We are pleased that the government's proposals for delivering Tax-Free Childcare have been found to be clearly lawful. This government is absolutely clear on the importance of supporting families with their childcare costs.'
'It is disappointing that some organisations involved in the existing scheme felt the need to take and persist in this costly and wasteful course of action, which has led to a delay in the launch of Tax-Free Childcare.'
