Reminder on tax credits

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has issued a reminder that anyone wishing to claim tax credits must do so by 31 July.

Steve Lamey, director of benefits and credits at HMRC, sad: “Time is running out to renew. Claimants need to renew by 31 July or their payments will stop.”

HMRC has published a series of online videos to help claimants through the renewal process.

The interactive, bite-sized videos take viewers through the renewal process step by step. The videos cover key areas such as: checking the accuracy of the information in renewals pack; notifying HMRC of any changes in circumstances that haven’t already reported during the year; and providing details of the previous year’s income.

The videos are available at:
