Get up to 70% off from our tuition fee
At HofTs Education Centres, we appreciate that parents want the best for their children and want to be able to benefit from the tuition services that we offer. However, we know that sometimes finding the money to fund this can be difficult, particularly in the current economic climate.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce that parents with children at Hofts Education Centre can take advantage of savings on fees through Childcare Vouchers or Working Tax Credit.
Working Tax Credit
Parents who enrol their child/chilren at our HofTs Education Centres have the facility to obtain assistance with the cost from the Government under the Childcare Element of Working Tax Credit. Parents could be entitled up to 70% of their fees.
Parents will still have to pay their full fee to HofTs and up to 70% will be paid as reimbursement into the parents account.
E.g. if our fee is £120, parents could be entitled to 70% off which is £84. Parents will pay us the full amount of £120 and then HMRC pays the reimbursement of £84 into parents account.
Please note that your dealings with HofTs Education Centres remain the same. Fees must still be paid in advance to HofTs Education Centres even if you are claiming or about to claim for Working Tax Credit.
Reimbursement of fees must be sought from HMRC , not from HofTs Education Centres.
For you to be eligible for receive the Childcare Element of Working Tax Credit should you enrol your child at HofTs Education Centres, you need to be working 16 hours or more a week. If you are part of a couple, you both need to be working 16 hours or more a week. You can only claim childcare costs for any child up to the Saturday following 1st September after their 15th birthday.
For the latest figures, please refer to the HMRC website.
To make a claim for the Childcare Element of Working Tax Credit, please phone the HM Revenue & Customs Working Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900 which is available from 8 am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Help with Fees via Childcare Vouchers
Childcare Vouchers are a form of ‘employer supported childcare,’ a popular scheme which an increasing number of employers are adopting. This scheme works via salary sacrifice where an employer pays the employee partially in the form of Childcare Vouchers up to a value of £243 per month. These Vouchers are both tax and National Insurance free, thus greater in value than the cash equivalent, and can be used to pay for approved services. These Vouchers can be used in any Ofsted registered branch of HofTs Education Centres.
There are wide ranges of these schemes currently running operated by a variety of different providers. We are currently registered to accept Childcare Vouchers from Kiddivouchers, Edenred and Sodexo. If there are other providers please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to look into those providers too.
