Tax Credits renewal


Tax Credits need to be renewed by the 31 st of July.

You can only renew your tax credits if you receive your renewal pack, and that is usually sent before 30th of June.The pack tells you how to renew them-by post, phone or email(only possible if your pack has an Annual Declaration and you have no changes to report).

If you qualify for automatic renewal, please check all your details are correct.

If you claimed tax credits after 6 April, your renewal pack is usually sent the following year.  images

However, if you do not get your pack by 30 June you should call the Tax Credit Helpline.

Renewals are quite straightforward and you will need:

  • your renewal pack
  • your National Insurance Number
  • your total income for the previous tax year(including your partner’s)
  • details of any changes to your circumstances, if any

For online renewals you will also need the 15 digit number on the bottom right of your annual declaration and for telephone renewals you will need your Tax Credit Helpline password.

Within 8 weeks, you should receive a notice from the Tax Credit Office telling you how much you will receive.
