Before you start

Renewal packs are sent between April and June. If you started claiming tax credits after 6 April, your pack will be sent the following year.

Your tax credits will be renewed automatically if you don’t get an annual declaration with your renewal pack.

You must renew by phone if you don’t receive your renewal pack by 30 June.

After you’ve renewed

HM Revenue and Customs will send you an award notice within 8 weeks of receiving your renewal, telling you how much you’ll get.

Call the Tax Credit Helpline if there’s a mistake on your notice.
