Released 29 September 2021
HMRC are urging Working Tax Credit (WTC) claimants to check if they need to update their working hours if these have reduced as a result of coronavirus.
Claimants do not need to tell HMRC if they re-establish their normal working hours before 25 November 2021, but from then, they must do so within the usual one-month window if they are not back to working their normal hours shown in their Working Tax Credit claim.
HMRC are also reminding claimants that Post Office card accounts are closing. From 30 November 2021 HMRC will stop making payments of Child Benefit, Guardians Allowance and tax credits into Post Office card accounts.
