Is there a limit to the weekly nursery fees that tax credit will help u with. My friend told me that they will only help you if the nursery is charging up to £197 a week....any higher and u will get no help. Anybody know if this is true??

They will pay up to 70% of your fees up to a limit of £170 - you can still be paying higher than that if you need but they will only pay 70% of £170 (its higher if you've got more than one kid of course) - so that would be £119. If you were paying £300 a week fees you'd get the £119 but no more than if you were paying £170. So you can still claim, you just have to pay more yourself if its over £170.

No problem, oh and you have to earn under a certain amount to qualify, but IR website can tell you that.
