Childcare Vouchers may only be accepted by the Carer in exchange for childcare services. Vouchers must not be exchanged for cash or change is given and any attempt to do so will constitute tax evasion.

The Carer shall not charge the employee presenting the voucher a handling fee for accepting the voucher.

All instructions to process vouchers received will be entered onto the Carer’s account on the day of receipt or if this is not possible, on the next working day. RG Childcare will then process a BACS to the Carer on the next working day. To be credited as per BACS terms and conditions within three  working days. RG Childcare shall not be liable for any failure or delay by BACS to remit payment.
If RG Childcare informs the Carer that certain vouchers are stolen, fraudulent or otherwise invalid, the Carer should not accept such vouchers and RG Childcare will not be liable to the Carer for the redemption of such vouchers.
E-vouchers will be redeemed by the employee accessing his/her internet account and arranging payment directly into your bank account. RG Childcare shall have no liability to the Carer for sums owed by the employee for the provision of childcare paid for this way.
When vouchers are received by the carer, the counterfoil must be attached.
