HMRC warns thousands are 'missing out' on £500 in free state support – check now


Claimants will usually get tax-free childcare if they’re in work, on sick or annual leave, or shared parental, maternity, paternity or adoption leave.

Additionally, people may still be eligible for the support if they’re temporarily working less due to coronavirus and/or receiving support from the furlough scheme or SEISS.

Applicants will also be expected to earn a certain amount over the coming three months, with this being at least the national minimum wage or living age for 16 hours a week on average.

For example, over three months claimants must be expected to earn at least £1,813.76, the national living wage for people over 25.
