HMRC reminds tax credits claimants to renew and reveals minimum wage crackdowns lead to record reimbursements

Reminder to renew tax credit claims by July 31st

HMRC will be issuing tax credit renewal packs up until the end of June. These will need to be completed and returned by the 31st July deadline.

An advertising campaign across various media has begun to remind people if they do not renew, they will lose further entitlement until they do.

Claimants who have not received their packs need to get in touch with HMRC via the tax credits helpline on 0345 300 3900.
