Opt out of Child Benefit payments
To opt out of Child Benefit payments, you can either:
You need a Government Gateway user ID and password to fill in the online form. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you fill in the form.
You cannot use the online form if you’re an appointee or authorised agent.
You cannot opt out of Child Benefit payments if you’re using them to pay back an overpayment or to pay back certain other benefits from another country.
Responsibilities after you opt out of Child Benefit payments
You must pay any tax charge owed for each tax year up to the date your Child Benefit payments stop.
Use the Child Benefit tax calculator to get an estimate of how much you may owe each tax year.
Even after you opt out of payments, you must report any changes in your family life that affect your entitlement to Child Benefit.
