As an employee of Moray Council, you’re entitled to a range of benefits, which you can read about in this section. Enjoy!
Our childcare voucher scheme with Edenred allows you to take a portion of your salary, tax and NI free, and convert it into childcare vouchers. These can be used as full or part-payment to registered childcare providers.
It’s classified as a ‘salary sacrifice’ scheme, which means that you ‘sacrifice’ up to £55 per week or £243 a month of your salary, in return for childcare vouchers. Given that you don’t pay tax or NI on this portion of your salary, the remaining salary is greater than it would be if you paid your childcare from your net salary. Over the course of the year, this could save you up to £1,196, depending how much tax and NI you’d normally pay.
You can use Edenred’s savings calculator to see how much you’d save using the scheme.
