Parents with children who will be aged three by the summer term should register for a 30 hours funded place by end of February.
Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) - which administers the Childcare Choices website and helpline for 30 hours and tax free childcare registration – has advised that new parents must register by 31 July 2018 to guarantee an eligibility code.
Without this code, parents won’t be able to receive funding for the additional entitlement.
The absolute deadline for receiving an eligibility code is 31 August 2018 but this can take a few days. Anyone missing this deadline may not be eligible for a 30 hours place for their child, starting from September 2018. It is advisable to register as early as possible.
Parents of children already on the scheme are reminded they must reconfirm their eligibility every three months from the date of receiving their code. If they don’t do this, they will automatically be put into their “grace period” (the duration of the following half term) before losing their funding.
