CIPP and CIPD joint survey on Tax-Free Childcare delivery model

28 May 2014

Do you have an opinion on which provider the government use to deliver Tax-Free Childcare? Please take five minutes to share your views.

The Tax-Free Childcare: consultation on childcare account provision has been published to seek views on options for the government to deliver Tax-Free Childcare itself, through National Savings and Investments (NS&I), or within HMRC or via other account provider options.

Publishing this consultation means that all interested parties will have had an opportunity to comment on all of the options for account provision across public and private sectors.

Whilst there is no mandatory role for employers, we are aware that some employers may wish to provide support to the their employees by making deductions from net pay which will then be paid over to account providers. In this instance, a software solution will be required, which may be found in existing payroll software or it may have additional data requirements. The CIPP Policy team and the CIPD have put together a very brief survey to gather any views from interested parties. The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and will close on 20 June 2014.

The government will consider responses to this consultation alongside the response to the previous consultation before it makes its final decision on the provision of childcare accounts.

Full details of account provider options can be found in the original Tax-Free Childcare: consultation on design and operation .

Recognising that under the tax-free childcare regime there is to be no mandatory role for the employer, but that employer involvement is being encouraged and enabled, CIPP published a small survey, in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD), which looked to establish views from members and employers on their openness to
