Foster carers, and prospective foster carers, are invited to take part in a free webinar being offered by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to find out more about tax issues.
Entitled ‘Foster Carers and HMRC', this webinar is a basic guide to key tax and National Insurance issues affecting foster carers, such as what is Qualifying Care Relief and how it works, how to keep records, and what to put on your tax return. Plus, you will also have the opportunity to ask your own questions.
Jackie Sanders, head of media and campaigns at the Fostering Network, said: “We know that lots of foster carers took part in the previous round of tax webinars in July and we’re pleased that the HMRC has decided to run the webinar again for those who missed out.
“It is vital that foster carers, and prospective foster carers, know the tax implications of fostering. The webinars are a great opportunity to stay up to date and to help keep organising finances as hassle-free as possible. So if you didn’t take part last time, why not sign up now?”
The webinar will be held on Tuesday 24 September at 7pm, and will last about one hour. As always, you can be involved in webinars from the comfort of your own home.
Please be advised that places are limited, reserve your space today at:
After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information on how to join the webinar.
