Child Tax Credits - Nine out of ten families are eligible for some financial assistance through the new Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances.
Families with children can claim Child Tax Credit if their income is no more than £58,175 a year (up to £66,350 if you have a child under one).The amount you get depends on various things, including your annual income and is paid directly into the bank of the main carer.
The other tax credit you may be entitled to, if either you or your partner is working, is called Working Tax Credit. It includes a childcare element to help families who are working and spending money on childcare.

If you claim tax credits to help with your childcare payments, you need to make sure that the information you're providing is accurate and up to date.

HM Revenue and Customs is responsible for providing tax credits, and they have asked us to share the following information.


It’s important that you tell us about any changes in your circumstances. This is to make sure that you are paid the right amount of tax credits. If your award is wrong, it could lead to an overpayment which you may have to pay back. The longer an incorrect award goes on, the more money you will have to pay back.

Here are some key points which could affect your tax credit claim to childcare costs:

Children aged 3

From September 2010 children aged 3 and above are entitled to free education sessions of 15 hours per week for a maximum of 38 weeks.

As the funding is paid directly to the childcare provider, your childcare costs should reduce. You need to tell us straight away if your child is receiving free early education, or you could end up having to pay money back to us.

Children aged 4 and over

When your child starts school or nursery your childcare costs may stop or go down. You need to tell us straight away or you could end up having to pay money back to us.
