This information is not available. The tax and national insurance rules provide an exemption of up to £55 per week where an employer provides employees with vouchers for qualifying child care. Formal application to HMRC is not required nor are employers required to report that they are participating in the child care voucher initiative unless they provide vouchers in excess of the exempt amount.
