Following the recent parliamentary debate where the government announced that childcare vouchers would be kept open for a further six months, they have officially passed the Income Tax (Limited Exemptions for Qualifying Childcare Vouchers and other Childcare) (Relevant Day) Regulations 2018.

These regulations state that from 5 October 2018, childcare vouchers will close to new entrants.  From that date, parents who are already using vouchers can continue to do so as long as they remain with their employer.  In general terms this means that September 2018 is the last payroll period that employees will be able to join the Childcare Vouchers Scheme.
