Child Benefit and Tax Credits: Information Powers

The guidance at CCM5050 to CCM5180 tells you what information powers are available for tax credits.

For Child Benefit you can ask for information

  • before a decision is made on a claim (Regulation 7 Administration Regulations)
  • to decide whether a claim should be revised or superseded (Regulation 19 Decisions and Appeals Regulations).

Time to provide information

For both jointly worked cases and stand alone Child Benefit cases the claimant should be given a minimum of 40 days to provide the information.
