Many people on lower earnings, and who work 30 hours or more per week could be entitled to Working Tax Credit (You don’t have to have children to claim working tax credit).

Working Tax Credit helps to make work pay by providing an income top-up for people with earnings below a certain level.

Your employees could claim if they:-

  • Are aged 25 or over
  • Work 30 hours or more a week
  • Earn up to £13,190 a year (or £17,956 as a couple).

 

Employees aged 16 or over who are parents, or have a disability, and those over 50 returning to work after a period of being on benefits, may also be entitled if they work at least 16 hours per week.

To find out what your employees could claim they can visit www.direct.gov.uk/taxcredits or call 0845 300 3900 for a claim form.
