Before you start

To sign in for the first time, you’ll need:

  • a Government Gateway account - you’ll have one if you’ve used HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) online services before
  • a permanent National Insurance number

Signing in creates your account. It will also activate your personal tax account - you can use this to check and manage your HMRC records.

Renewing your tax credits

You can no longer renew your tax credits for the 2015 to 2016 tax year.

Call the tax credit helpline if you’ve missed the deadline. You’ll need your National Insurance number and your renewal pack, if you have it.
