Speedy Tax Returns from Easy Accountancy

Tax credits renewal deadline

The deadline to renew your tax credits, including child tax credits and working tax credits, is 31 July 2017.

Those claiming tax credits should receive a renewal pack in the post ahead of the deadline and must respond if the pack has a red line across the first page and says ‘reply now’.

The following details are required for renewal:

  • renewal pack
  • your national insurance number
  • details about any changes to your circumstances
  • you and your partner’s total income for the last year
  • the 15-digit renewals reference number (if renewing by phone). 

Tax credits can be renewed online, by telephone or paper form.

The tax credit office will tell you how much money you will get when it sends you an award notice within 8 weeks of receiving your renewal. 

People applying in 2017/18 for the first time will use their current circumstances and income received between 6 April 2016 and 6 April 2017. 

If the 31 July deadline is missed, your tax credit payments will stop and you may have to pay back the tax credits received since 6 April 2017. 

You won’t get a renewal pack until April 2018 if you made your first tax credits claim after 6 April 2017. If you haven’t received your renewal pack, call the tax credits helpline on 0345 300 3900.
