The labour and childcare market impacts of TFC and the FEEE

A report prepared for HM Revenue and Customs and the Department for Education

Childcare policy in the UK has developed rapidly over the last two decades. Two new initiatives were introduced in 2017 with the objective of supporting parents to work: Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) now offers a 20 percent subsidy for childcare costs to working parents and the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) has been extended from 15 to 30 weekly hours for three and four year old pre-school children of working parents.
