You’ll need details of:

  • your income
  • your partner’s income
  • your working hours
  • any benefits you’re claiming, or have just stopped claiming
  • the average weekly amount you spend on childcare

If your income is likely to be different from last year

The calculator asks you for your income for the last tax year. If you think your income will change by more than £2,500 this tax year, estimate what your income will be and:

  • take away £2,500 from it if it’s going up
  • add £2,500 to it if it’s going down

You’ll need to use this figure instead of your actual income. This is because the Tax Credit Office ignores the first £2,500 of your income change, but the calculator doesn’t.

Example Your income for the last tax year was £30,000. You think your income will drop to £20,000 this tax year. Enter £22,500 into the calculator.

If you’re subject to immigration control

Contact the Tax Credit Office to check your eligibility for tax credits if both the following apply:

  • you’re in a couple and either of you is subject to immigration control
  • you’re not responsible for any children

Call the Tax Credit Helpline for an estimate of how much tax credits you could get.
