What are childcare vouchers?
Childcare vouchers allow working parents to exchange a proportion of their salary for vouchers before their usual tax and NI contributions are taken. This means your employees could save over £900 per year on their childcare costs until their child is 15!
Financial savings for employers
Employers save up to £402 per employee per year on your employer NI contributions. So you get a top 5 benefit that costs very little and, in most cases, can actually save you money!

Childcare vouchers for self-employed
Currently the government doesn’t allow self-employed parents to take part in employer-supported childcare voucher schemes. This is because they do not pay tax under PAYE, so are not entitled to the savings on tax and NI contributions of childcare vouchers.
At Sodexo we are lobbying the government to allow childcare vouchers to be extended to self-employed parents. Find out more >>
Excellent support and account management
The day to day support and account management provided by Sodexo is excellent. The online portal is easy to use and overall the whole process is smooth and practically invisible on a monthly basis, which is a great help. I would recommend Sodexo as a childcare voucher provider. The customer care team staff are very knowledgeable and helpful when contacted, the process runs smoothly every month and the site is easy to use.
