Abstract

"This pilot looked to assess whether increasing the maximum limits of the childcare element of tax credits for families with disabled children acted as an incentive to move into work. In the event whilst 191 customers registered an interest in the pilot (and 59 families registered an interest from the control group) only 16 actually moved into work and childcare via the Childcare Affordability Pilot (CAP09) process, of these only 5 customers had childcare costs that were above the existing tax credits limits. As a result, it must be concluded that the low take-up of the pilot and control offers indicates that raising the childcare limits for disabled children, in itself, had a negligible effect on moving families into work and childcare. However the small numbers allow for very little analysis beyond this conclusion." - Page 2.
