My son is 2 years old and about to start at Nursery School. I will be paying for 15 hours/week (possibly rising to 30, based on this question!) I have been told I may be eligible for tax-free childcare such that the government will pay 20% of the childcare costs. However, my wife does not work. She is also on a British Residency Permit and has no access to public funds. This seems to indicate, from my reading of the guidance that I may not be eligible for this government subsidy. Can someone confirm whether I am eligible for tax-free childcare with these circumstances. Thank you!

We are not able to answer this question here as it does not relate to income tax.

You would need to speak to our childcare service helpline see link:

Childcare Service helpline   .

Thank you.
