Tax credits calculator
You can no longer make a new claim for tax credits.
You may be able to claim Universal Credit instead.
If you already get tax credits
You can still make a claim for Child Tax Credit or Working Tax Credit.
To do this, you’ll need to update your existing tax credit claim.
Some changes may stop your tax credits. If your tax credits stop, you cannot claim tax credits again.
Check how tax credits and other benefits affect each other.
