” An immediate advance » paid by Urssaf
The Ministry of the Economy declares: After a successful experiment in 2020-2021, the government has chosen to generalize the possibility for parents to benefit from an immediate advance [du crédit impôt] for childcare activities for children over 6 years old “.
Simply put, this change will now allow affected households to pay only half of the actual cost of childcare. Now, Urssaf directly funds the other half. Whether the home help is paid via a service provider or directly by the parents.
As Bercy argues: This advance, optional, but easily accessible from two devices via internet portals, allows individuals who so choose to no longer advance sums that would be reimbursed to them by the tax credit declared only the following year; and, therefore, to only have to pay the amounts truly payable by them “.
