Can I put my childcare costs through on my expenses for the tax year when doing self assessment? Thanks
What is the Tax-Free Childcare scheme ?
Tax-Free Childcare is a government scheme that offers working families (including the self-employed) support towards childcare costs. You could get up to £500 every three months (£2,000 a year) for each child to put towards approved childcare (including childminders, nurseries, and nannies). The childcare provider needs to meet certain criteria, be signed up to the government’s scheme and be registered with a regulator such as Ofsted.
When it comes to costs associated with self employment and allowable against tax , always best to bounce directly of the TaxMan :
When it comes to ANY form of employment , the weekly limit is £ 123 ... 1p over and one can kiss goodbye to Carers Allowance.
I will assume that the DoleMan follows the same rules as the TaxMan when it comes to " Deductible expenses " before arriving
at a figure ?
