Not working with Children

Below we have created a table which shows how much you would expect to receive for tax credits if you are not working and have children. The amounts are based on the entire year (the tax year starts on the 6th April and ends on 5th April of the following year). If you are a couple, the annual income should be your joint annual income.

The recent changes made by the government can be confusing and stressful. If you have any questions about your situation, please leave in the comments section and as a community we will do our best to try and find an answer to your query. Please remember that any comments or data found on this site should not be taken as financial advice. You should always check with a financial advisor or your local HMRC tax office.
