Description: Under TFC the intention is to provide childcare accounts for all eligible children for which the first £8,000 deposited by parents or others is topped up by government by 20p for every 80p deposited, up to a maximum of £2,000 per child per year. The TFC programme will design and implement the TFC scheme. Accountability for TFC is divided between HMRC and HM Treasury (HMT). HMRC are responsible for TFC delivery and for outcomes on customer service such as correct payments and data security. HMT have responsibility for ensuring the scheme delivers its intended policy outcomes and for advising ministers on any further policy changes needed to ensure the outcomes continue to be achieved.
