Childcare Vouchers

Discussion in 'Parenting' started by EulersTheorem, Aug 6, 2011.

  1. Hello,
    My baby was born two weeks ago and I'm planning on going back to work the week before we break up for Christmas, thus childcare will start in January (childminder.) The childminder accepts childcare vouchers and we will only be using her during term time. The cost of childcare will be almost £900 a month - term time. I am wondering whether to go with the childcare vouchers. My Husband's work does not do the scheme.
    Have you any ideas or thoughts or suggestions please??
    I understand the pros: pay less tax, etc. BUT the cons are that my pension will go down. Is this such a big deal though as it will only be for the next three years?
    Thank you in advance
