Tax Rebate Services has a free guide to money for parents. It includes everything you need to know about the financial side of having children.
However your family unit is made up, if you have children you have child-related expenses…probably quite a lot of them. The UK system is amazing because there are in-built financial allowances, credit and work leave entitlements that you can claim. We are tremendously lucky to have this state support for our children, but navigating the system can be a bit tricky. The TRS Money Parents Page breaks down all the different childcare elements into bite-sized chunks.
Balancing childcare and work commitments is a daily challenge for millions of parents and carers. That’s why we’ve included a few sections containing alternative money making ideas and how to make the most of your parent pounds when you’re shopping for essentials.
What does Tax Rebate Services money for parents include?
The basic structure of each sub-section is: What is it? Who is it for? How much is it worth? We also include other relevant things like How to claim and a liberal sprinkling of our Top Tips.
Currently TRS Money’s Parent Page includes the sub-sections:
- Statutory Maternity Pay and Leave
- Maternity Allowance
- Paternity Leave
- Shared Parental Leave
- Child Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
- Child Benefit
- Childcare Vouchers
- Married Persons Allowance
- Cashback Sites
- Loyalty Points
- Making Some Extra Cash
As you can see, many of the allowances and credits have similar names, which does make things even more confusing.
Most parents and carers don’t have the time for intensive internet research, or the energy to try and unravel complicated regulations. That’s where we come in. We don’t think you should miss out on your legal entitlements to help support your children because of a lack of understandable information.
You’ll find clear answers to your questions and signposts to more detailed information if you need it. We update our information constantly, so you know you’re reading the latest facts and figures. New sections will be added as policies change, or we unearth new money saving and earning ideas for parents and carers.
