When do Childcare Vouchers end?

 
The scheme - which is operated through employers and allows you to pay for childcare from your company was supposed to close to new entrants on 5 April this year.
 
But in a debate in the House of Commons last month, Education Secretary Damian Hinds made the concession to extend the scheme by six months.
 
Childcare vouchers are being replaced by an alternative system called Tax-Free Childcare, but this scheme has suffered a succession of problems, including website issues.
 
The exact date on which the Childcare Vouchers scheme will now close to new applicants has not been announced yet, but it's expected it'll be around October.
