A client has asked if they can put the cost of childcare though their limited company as an expense.
The company trade is painting and decorating, there are two directors (a couple with 3 children) and one employee in the company. The companies work involves a lot of travel with one of the directors and the employee traveling around the country for work. This leaves the second director at home to deal with all the bookkeeping and paperwork for which she receives a wage.
I have been asked if they can put the cost of childcare through the limited company to give the director time to complete the paperwork for the business.
My understanding is that childcare vouchers and childcare your employer arranges with a provider used to be schemes that your employer could provide but that these schemes are no longer available and that they have been replaced by Tax-Free Childcare.
Are there any other options to Tax-Free Childcare with a limited company?
Any advice would be appreciated.
