Millions of families have days left to confirm child benefit payments


Millions of families have just a few days left to confirm their child’s benefit payments.

Families earning over £50,000 must notify HMRC by 31 January that they are also receiving child benefit.

Families have 11 days left to see if they need to pay

Families have 11 days left to see if they need to paycredit:

You may be charged £100 if you do not declare your income and do not receive child benefit which will be increased in April.

This is because if you or your partner’s personal income exceeds £50,000, your family will have to pay high-income child benefits.

To find out if your income is over the £50,000 threshold, you need to calculate your ‘adjusted net income’.

Adjusted net income is gross taxable income before deductions, which includes interest from savings and dividends.

Gov.UK’s Child Benefit Tax Calculator can be used to estimate your adjusted net income.

To pay high-income child benefits and avoid a £100 fine, you must complete your self-assessment tax return by 31 January.

Some parents continue to claim and pay child benefits because it helps them build the national insurance credit they need to qualify for public pensions.

However, if you do not notify HMRC and do not pay your taxes by January 31st, they may fine you.

Failure to file a self-assessment tax return can result in fines of up to 30% from HMRC.

A late return penalty of £100 also applies and for late interest of more than 3 months

If it’s longer than that, interest will start being charged on the outstanding balance.

How do I fill out a tax return form?

A unique taxpayer reference (UTR) and an activation code from HMRC are required before you can complete and submit your tax return.

If this is your first self-assessment, please register online as soon as possible, as it may take some time to receive it.

To sign in or register, please visit the ‘Self-Assessed Tax Returns’ section of the HMRC website.

If you have already signed up for your self-assessment, you can find your UTR in the relevant letter or email from HMRC.

HMRC will accept payments on the day you make the payment and not on the day the account is credited, including weekends.

If you need to change your tax return after submission, you may do so within 12 months of the original due date or notify HMRC in writing of any subsequent changes.

Filling out a tax return can seem daunting, but our step-by-step guides will help you sort it out in no time.

What is child allowance for high-cost medical expenses?

Child benefits are given to families raising children under the age of 16 or under the age of 20, provided they have an “approved” education or training.

There is no limit to the number of children you can apply for.

Benefits are worth £21.80 per week for the oldest or only child and £14.45 per additional child.

However, if you or your partner individually earns more than £50,000, you will need to start paying back some of your child benefits.

If your income is between £50,000 and £60,000, you will be charged 1% of your child’s benefit for every £100 between those two figures.

If your income exceeds £60,000, all child benefits will be deducted.

This means that couples can earn up to £100,000 in total without deducting child benefits.

Benefits can be passed on to family members who care for the child.

However, the parent must have already claimed child benefit.

If your income exceeds the threshold, you can still choose to be paid and pay HMRC tax at the end of each tax year.

Alternatively, you can opt out of receiving payments and not pay taxes.

Parents must notify HMRC if they are responsible for a claim and must file a self-assessment tax return to pay it.
