Contact Child Tax Credit

If you have children and you would like to enquire about getting help from the UK government in the form of Child Tax Credits, then just dial 0345 300 3900 on your phone to contact HMRC.

When you have children, you have to let go of so many personal luxuries just to take care of them. One of the first things that you may unintentionally have to forego are your own financial needs – that’s why the UK government made Child Tax Credits. When prioritising for the month’s budget, you will most likely take care of everything child-related first before you even try and use some of your own money for yourself. You may have your eyes on that sweet new BMW but little Timmy is just about to enter primary school and you need to pay for his uniform and stationary.

You and your loved one may want to spend even just a few days on a beach somewhere in the Mediterranean but little Tiffany has to have braces. These are just some of the very likely scenarios that you may have to face when you have a child. They may be a little bit exaggerated but they reflect the truth. The UK government empathises with parents and that’s why HMRC provides Child Tax Credit for eligible parents.
