Income Tax changes
From the start of the 2014/2015 tax year, the basic tax free personal allowance will be raised to £10,000. No mention as yet of plans for National Insurance, but for the meantime this means there will be no tax to pay on up to £10,000 of income for the vast majority of taxpayers.
There is a new 20 percent tax relief available for childcare costs from 2015 - initially detailed to be up £6,000 per child. This scheme would replace the current tax efficient method of using childcare vouchers.
