Post subject: Help with Childcare - Tax Credits
we are looking to put our littleone into childcare as its not working out with my parents, just been looking online and it says you can get quite a lot of money per week for childcare costs, (over 100) does this seem right? I was only looking to get a child minder for 2 days as its so expensive!! but could manage 3 days with that money

anyone else claiming childcare costs?? x

that sounds really good if they pay 80% of the costs, i know you have to work over 16 hours and i think i just come into that as i work 2 days (14hrs if not including breaks tho) but what if your partner works, do you still get paid 80% ?? x
